A loan of $1,000 helps to buy: new clothing styles for all ages.


Rosa Alicia's story

Rosa is 37 years old. She is a kind and hardworking woman. She lives with her husband and their three daughters in their relatives' house. Her husband works in a dairy factory. Rosa, on her part, has been selling ladies', men's, and children's clothing for 20 years. She began this profession at the time when the sucre was the official currency of Ecuador. She does this work on the weekends at the market in her city. This job has allowed her to contribute to the finances of her household, as well as send her daughters to school. The loans have been a very important part of the growth of her business. This time she is requesting a loan of 1,000 dollars, which will allow her to add new clothing styles. That way, she will be able to catch the attention of her clients with trendy styles that have a better yield when they're sold. In this way she aspires to make a better profit to achieve her dream of having her own home.
