Rosa Cándida
Rosa, 53, studies social work. She is married and her husband works for a government institution as he is an agriculturist. They have three daughters who are studying at university.

She has a new American clothing retail business and has been working at market for 2 years. Previously, she sold products from a catalogue. She learnt the clothing sales business from her cousin her rented her a stall in the market and this was how she decided to start in this business. The market is a 15 minute walk from her home. She works alone as her daughters are studying and her husband works so they do not have time to help her.

The loan that she is requesting from fundación Campo is to buy more clothing for men and children as she is lacking these and they are want her customers ask for the most, but also to display they at her market stall as two months ago they ran out of stock and have had to be ordered individually. Stocking these products will give her more income, as she will have the clothes the customers are looking for available.

Her dream is to have a bigger store and a well stocked clothing business with lots of customers buying and going away satisfied with the stock. With the earnings she wants to continue supporting her daughters through their university courses and help them achieve their dreams to become professionals. This is the only inheritance that Rosa says she will leave them.

Rosa de 53 años, estudio Técnico en Trabajo social, es casada, el esposo trabaja en una institución de Gobierno; ya que es Agrónomo, han procreado tres hijas, las cuales están estudiando en la Universidad.

Ella posee, un negocio de venta de ropa americana y nueva ya hace 2 años en el mercado. Antes vendía productos de la revista por catálogo, este trabajo de la venta de ropa lo aprendió de su prima, que le prestó el local en el mercado y fue así que decidió estar con este negocio. El mercado le queda a unos 15 minutos a pie de la casa; en este negocio solo trabaja ella ya que por el estudio de las hijas no le ayudan y el esposo que trabaja no les queda tiempo.

El préstamo que está solicitando a fundación Campo, es para comprar más ropa de varón y de niñas; ya que es de esas que le faltan y los clientes le buscan más, pero también pondrá la luz en el local del mercado ya que desde hace 2 meses les cortaron la luz en todo el mercado y tienen que ponerla por individual, esto vendrá a darle más ganancias, ya que esa ropa que buscan la tendrá disponible.

Su sueño, es poseer un local más grande y un negocio de ropa muy surtido que todos los clientes compren y se vayan satisfechos con lo que vende y con las ganancias seguir preparando a sus hijas en las carreras universitarias y que hagan realidad el sueño de ser profesionales, ese es la única herencia que les dejara, manifiesta Rosa.
