A loan helped to buy blouses, dresses, pants, one-pieces, and t-shirts among other items.


Rosa Isabel's story

Rosa is 24 years old and in a common-law marriage. From this relationship she is expecting her first baby. Her partner works in a tuna factory, and they live in the tourist and fishing city of Jaramijó, which has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rosita has a business of selling clothing like blouses, bras, underwear, dresses, pants, and leggings. She travels around and dedicates herself to this activity six days a week for more than eight hours a day. She sells on credit with bi-monthly collections. During the health emergency she did not go out to sell her merchandise due to the fear of contagion, and this loan will newly revive her business.

She will use the loan to buy more merchandise like blouses, dresses, pants, one-pieces, and t-shirts among other items. Her hope is to have her own storefront.
