A loan of $925 helped to buy a sewing machine and raw materials.

Rosalba's story

Rosalba is a 52 year-old woman. She lives with her husband and a minor child who is studying in the 5th grade. He is a very intelligent child who has a desire to succeed. This is why Rosalba wants him to complete his education. This has inspired her to expand her business, making undergarments in greater quantities so that she can expand into other areas and sell to more customers. She has been selling underwear for a number of years, but her demand has increased and she doesn't have a machine that will enable her to work more rapidly. Therefore, she is requesting a loan so that she can buy another sewing machine and raw materials so that she can complete her orders more quickly. Rosalba chose the Fundacion Mujer because of the good service and lower interest rates they offer. She dreams of expanding her dressmaking workshop and hiring women in the area who, like her, are working to get ahead with their families.
