Rosa Isabel
In Los Bajos of Montecristi, a city known for its variety of traditional products such as straw hats and shawls that are well-known within and outside of the country, the members of the Santa Martha communal bank gather together every 15 days.

Señora Rosa lives here. She is 46 years old, married, and has three children from this relationship. Two of the children are adults, and one is 15 and in high school. Her husband is a merchant. She learned tailoring and dressmaking at an academy in town.

Doña Rosa is a very hard-working woman who likes to fend for herself and help her husband get their family ahead in life. She has a small sewing workshop in her house where she earns a living by making clothing of all kinds, although she most enjoys making women's clothing. She has many customers who come to her home so that she can make their clothing because she is very responsible and her work is of very good quality. She has spent more than 15 years dedicated to this job and it is going pretty well.

This loan is to buy thread, fabric, zippers, and other sewing materials that she needs to make her clothes. She has been with the communal bank since the very beginning and she likes it because the loans are very helpful.

Her dream is for her son to finish school and become a professional.
