A loan helped to buy equipment and supplies in order to offer better upholstery services and earn a higher income for her family.


Rosanna's story

Rosanna is married. She has two young children.

From a young age, Rosanna has worked hard and in all sorts of jobs. She came from the countryside to study and work, and she was able to move forward after studying at a technical school where she trained in upholstery. Together with her husband, Rosanna has been able to start a small upholstering workshop. With the help of her in-laws, Rosanna has been able to buy materials, supplies and equipment, but she does not have the capital to buy more materials and equipment that she needs to do all sorts of jobs.

Rosanna has not been able to save up for her workshop as her daughter was ill. Savings were therefore spent on medications. Rosanna thanks God that her daughter is now better, and Rosanna is now working to fulfill lots of orders.

Rosanna hopes to expand her small workshop with this loan soon. She can then improve her family's quality of life.
