Rosalia
There is a community in the state of Oaxaca called San Miguel Soyaltepec. It has a very large lagoon that produces a lot of fish and work every year. It is also known because the Cerro de Oro Hydroelectric Dam is located there. Mrs. Rosalia R., 37, lives here. She studied up to 9th grade and she’s married to Alejandro who is a High Voltage Lineman. They have three children who attend the local community school.

Rosalia tells us that even though her husband works the money he earns isn’t sufficient to cover household expenses because every day the economic situation is more difficult. She, therefore, decided to start to work to help with expenses and with her children’s schooling costs. For a little over two years she’s been selling shoes via catalogue sales door to door among her friends and neighbors in the community. She tells us that first she goes around showing them the catalogue, then she takes orders, delivers them to her suppliers and when the orders arrive she delivers them to her customers and receives payment for the products. She needs this loan to invest in the purchase of catalogues and shoes for subsequent sale.

Rosalia hopes that her business will grow with this loan and produce good profits because she wants to have a small shoe store in her community in the future so as not to have to go door to door anymore.

She is very grateful to the Fundación for the opportunity it’s giving for her business’ prosperity.
