Alma Rosa

Alma Rosa is a hard-working, enthusiastic woman. Her husband, unable to find a steady job, works as a waiter, bricklayer, or whatever other job is available. Even then, his income is often insufficient to cover the family's basic needs. Faced with this situation, Alma started her business selling cosmetics five years ago, when her children were still small and required diapers and milk. She was fortunate in that she was able to build a large clientele, thanks in part to the high quality products she sold.

She now fills large orders and is requesting this loan, which she will repay over a period of 6 months, to purchase additional inventory to meet demand. Alma and her family thank you for your generosity and support.

Alma Rosa es una mujer muy trabajadora y entusiasta. Ante la falta de empleo su esposo realiza diversas actividades desde mesero hasta albañil, pero aun así el ingreso que obtiene es muy poco para cubrir las necesidades básicas de su familia, ante la necesidad de un ingreso extra Alma inició su negocio de venta de cosméticos desde hace cinco años, sus hijos estaban muy pequeños y requerían de leche y pañales, afortunadamente los productos que comercializa son de muy buena calidad y pronto logró incrementar su número de clientes.

Ahora ya surte grandes pedidos y para poder cubrir la demanda de sus clientes ahora Alma está solicitando un préstamo de $1,100 dólares, mismos que se compromete a devolver en 6 meses. Hoy es momento de ayudar a quien mas lo necesita, no lo pienses más, esta familia agradece mucho tu generosidad y apoyo.
