A loan of $1,000 helped buying a new sewing machine.

Rosa's story

Rosa K. is a tailor for 20 years. First she worked for The Producers’ Co-operative Society in Smolian but when in 1992 it was closed she rented a part of the building and opened her own tailoring workshop.

She makes every kind of clothing but is well known with the folklore costumes that she makes. Because of the fact that she is in this business for such a long time Rosa is one of the most popular tailors in the town and has lots of clients. When there are too many orders she hires some other tailors to help her.

The problem that bothers her at the moment is the high rent that she pays for her workshop and that is why she dreams of her own and better equipped hall in which to set her atelier. Rosa has one more dream – to design her own fashion line.

The loan will help her change her old sewing machine with a new one which will raise the quantity of her work.
