Rosa
Rosa, 34, is a kind, good, very responsible woman. She’s a single mother of a nine-year-old boy. She lives in her own house with her minor son who depends on her for his education and his food.

Rosa’s work is providing dressmaking services. She has a shop installed at home. She makes articles of clothing inspired and created by herself. Customers come by her shop daily seeking solutions to clothes that might be in need of repair. She also makes clothes to order for customers according to their taste and design choices. She has two sewing machines and a darning machine. She was able to buy the second sewing machine and the darner by working with the institution. She’s been in business 11 years.

When demand is low she works alone and when she needs help she’s obliged to hire two people who do the same kind of work and are good at sewing. Rosa has always liked sewing and she loves her work. It pleases her to make her own creations and develop her creativity. When she has no customers to tend to or clothes to repair she goes out to sell the items she’s made. She hopes later on to set up a well-equipped sewing workshop and start to expand her work in order to become a supplier to a large store in the city.

This is her 10th MFP loan and she feels grateful to the people who provide the financing she needs to realize her plans. On the other hand, she commits to make her installment payments punctually and hopes to continue working with her communal bank because of the fellowship and mutual support they have among each and every one of the members. She will use the requested 1,200 soles to buy materials like buttons, lace trim, thread in assorted colors, elastic and fabric to continue with her work.
