Rosa Ruiz is a loving mother and hardworking entrepreneur who lives in Bogota, Colombia with her children. For many years, Rosa worked at a big company in Bogota but then decided to put her financial security on the line to open her own business–a convenience store in town. Following her lifelong dream, however, was a big risk and has proven to be quite challenging at times. Everything began to change when a friend introduced Rosa to Opportunity International. When she joined, Rosa received financial training and a loan to purchase products for her store in bulk. With more products to sell and a greater diversity of products, Rosa was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Rosa will be able to continue to pursue her dreams while providing her children opportunities to pursue their own.
