Rosa Maria's story

Rosa Maria is a 40-year-old small business owner and resident of Soledad, who lives with her family and has been selling clothing, footwear and accessories for 15 years. She learned this trade at a very young age because her family has dedicated themselves to this work.

Nevertheless, she assumed her financial independence after separating from her previous partner with whom she lived for more than 12 years, moving her home forward through willpower and hard work. This work is her only source of income and it is what allows her to support her home.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has occurred worldwide, her level of work deteriorated because of biosecurity issues and her income decreased drastically. For this reason, she is requesting her first loan with the Santo Domingo Foundation in order to invest in the purchase of a larger inventory of fabrics and clothing such as blouses, pants, dresses and more.

Support her with this loan for her business.
