A loan of $1,000 helped buy fabrics and cement.

Rosa Eva's story

Rosa is 61 years old. She is a tailor and seamstress on the outskirts of Guayaquil, in an area surrounded by the salt estuary.

Because of the need to work and the lack of opportunities, Rosa began to work as a seamstress and tailor because it was what she liked to do best. She does not have a fixed schedule, since her workshop is located in part of her house. She makes clothing on order. One of the difficulties of her work is that her house is badly constructed and has problems.

With the loan she wants to buy fabric and cement to repair her house a little. In the future she wants to continue being healthy and continue working to be secure in her old age.
