Rosa Argentina
Rosa resides in the Department of Masaya, is 42 years old and married. Her nuclear family consists of just 2, herself and her husband, now that her children work independently.

Her skill is making artisan hammocks, using Manila cord. Previously, she helped her husband in the business, but since he became bed-ridden some 3 years ago, due to brain cancer, she decided to take on the reigns of the business. She would need to pay for the medicine he required and the chemotherapy.

Rosa reports that her husband continues to be ill, though at times he recuperates, then falls ill again. But she says that with God's help, all is possible and the struggle will continue so long as God allows her to be at her husband's side. Rosa will continue working in her business, since it is the only means she has of covering the costs. She is very grateful to Ceprodel for facilitating a loan that will permit her to buy the primary materials required to fill customer orders.

That is why Rosa has visited our offices, to solicit a new loan to buy 3 sacks of thread (specifically those she uses), twists (for hook supports), and 10 beach chair frames (that will also require these materials). She now has her own customers who buy her products from her location in the artisan sector of the market. Rosa can also count on a small post alongside the highway near her house.

Rosa reside en el departamento de Masaya, tiene la edad de 42 años, casada, su núcleo familiar es de 2 ella y su esposo, ya que sus hijos trabajan de forma independiente.
Su oficio es la elaboración de hamacas artesanales hechas a base de manila. Anteriormente ella era la que le ayudaba a su esposo en el negocio, pero a raíz que el esposo cayo en cama hace tres años atrás, esto debido a un cáncer que le detectaron en el cerebro, ella decidió tomar las riendas del negocio porque también requería pagar los gastos de los medicamentos que tenia que realizar por la enfermedad de su esposo, de las quimioterapias.

Doña Rosa nos comenta que su esposo sigue con la enfermedad ya que a veces se recupera y después vuelve a recaer, pero ella dice que con la ayuda de Dios todo es posible y que seguirá en la lucha hasta que Dios se lo permita al lado de su esposo, y seguirá trabajando en su negocio ya que es el único medio que le ha permitido sufragar los gastos. Le esta muy agradecida a nuestra Institución Ceprodel por darle la facilidad de obtener un crédito que le permita comprar la materia prima para cumplir con pedidos.
Es por eso que se presenta a nuestras oficinas para solicitar un nuevo crédito para la compra de 3 bolsas de hilo (especificar para que se usan), retorcido, (significado) 10 playeras (para que utilizan este). Ya que tiene sus propios clientes a los cuales les distribuye y que están ubicados en el sector de artesanía del mercado y también cuenta con un pequeño puesto a orilla de la carretera cerca de su casa.
