Rosa
Rosa is 44 years old and has had 3 children with her first husband, who has passed away. Now she is responsible for 2 of the children. Craftmenship is one of the abilities that she got from her parents. When she lived with her first husband,, she prepared the threads so that he could weave with the best speed. Now with her partner, both make textiles. Rosa wakes up at 3am in order to make her textiles and at 5:30am, she works at her other business, a restaurant that she opened 3 months ago. She isn't used to running the restaurant, and what she likes best is to make textiles. However, economic necessity obligates her to make new sources of income, since craftsmanship is only profitable at certain times. To cover the months of low demand, she started selling food. It is just next month, the month of April during Holy Week, that craftsmen make the best earnings. Rosa is the president of her communal bank, in this she is doing well, and she is proving to be a very responsible member with her payments and her functions in the group. This is her third loan with MFP (field partner.) The money that she is asking for will be used for buying materials for her craftsmenship, a bag of rice and a bucket of oil for her restaurant.

Rosa tiene 44 años de edad, tuvo 3 hijos con su primera pareja, quien murió. Ahora tiene 2 con su actual compromiso. La artesanía es una de las habilidades que heredó de sus padres; cuando vivía su primer esposo ella preparaba los hilos para que él pueda tejer con mayor rapidez. Ahora con su pareja actual, ambos tejen, Rosa se levanta a las 3.00am para avanzar con sus tejidos y apartir de las 5.30am se dedica a su otro negocio, que es un restaurante que abrió hace 3 meses, al que aún no se acostumbra, ya que lo más le gusta es tejer, pero la necesidad económica les obligó a buscar nuevas fuentes de ingreso, debido a que la artesanía es muy rentable en ciertas temporadas, pero para cubrir los meses donde la demanda baja decidieron empezar a vender comida. Y es justamente en el mes próximo de abril, en semana santa, cuando sus artesanías les dejan muy buenas ganancias. Rosa es la presidenta de su banco comunal, en este cargo dice sentirse muy bien, y está demostrando ser una cliente muy responsable, tanto en los pagos de sus cuotas con el sus funciones dentro de su grupo. Este es su 3er préstamo con MFP. El dinero que está solicitando lo derivará a la compra de materiales para su artesanía, asimismo comprará un saco de arroz y un balde de aceite para su restaurante.
