Rufina Margarita
View original language description ↓
Rufina is 33 years old, living with her husband and 3 children. She is a hard-working woman who is always seeking to make a significant contribution to the household finances. She does so with her embroidery, which began as a hobby helping one of her friends, then she realized that this work is profitable as well as enjoyable. She did not hesitate to begin her own business producing "talqueado" embroideries for costume parties called "Santiagos".



She has seen a profit from these 3 years of intense work and today her husband also encourages her to keep embroidering. He also engages in agricultural work and in the sale of firewood. In spite of the short time that her childcare leaves Rufina, she never stops working in her own home every day creating these beautiful embroideries, which realize their profit when they are sold after a month's labor.



Rufina's motivation is to give the best to her three children in school. She is requesting this loan in order to invest in the purchase of the supplies necessary for her work, such as fabrics and colored wool yarn. She will also invest a part in her husband's firewood business.
