A loan of $4,000 helped to buy supplies that will improve her production and sales of costume jewelry so that she can increase her income and have a better life.


Rita Paola's story

Sra. Rita is an enterprising woman who is 51 years old and has two children who are already independent. Rita has been making costume jewelry for one year. Now that she has more experience in this work, she wants to buy more supplies so that she can make a greater quantity of products. She wants to be able to open her own store where she can sell these things so that she will have higher profits from her purchase of these supplies, and therefore make progress in a more business-like way in this work for which she has great skill.

Rita has high expectations since what motivates her most is her desire to get ahead. With the many goals she hopes to accomplish, she wants to build the working capital that will give her greater economic stability.

Rita comes from an entrepreneurial family, and she is, above all, a hard worker who has been instilled with the values of humility, good management of her resources, respect, and an enterprising vision of how to reach the objectives that she has set for herself throughout her life.
