A loan helped to purchase raw materials to make traditional weavings to sell.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa has worked for over six years selling and making weavings and embroidery by hand. She also works raising animals. She sells her products in her house and at the market in her locality and it is with this work that she has supported her husband to provide the necessary care for their three children. Rosa María is very grateful to Kiva and Fape because they have been a blessing for their lives and she commits to continue being responsible in her payments. Rosa María asks for the loan to purchase fabric and thread to make more and better embroidery.
