Rosa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy fabric and sewing materials, because people come to her to buy their fabric, and she makes the clothes right there.
Rosa never went to school, but her ex-husband taught her to read and write. Rosa earns her living making clothes. Her most common task is making uniforms for school children. Her children go to school, and help her with her work. Also, she lives with a grand daughter that has been with her since she was 3 months old. Today the grand daughter is 14. Rosa learned dressmaking when she was 12 years old, but started working independently when she was 16. She needs the money from the loan to buy fabric and sewing materials, because people in her community come to her to buy the fabric, and she makes the clothes right there. Her plans for the future are to have a better sewing machine and improve her house, as well as teaching her children her craft so that they can have opportunities to work in the future.
