Rosaura has a responsibility that makes her work hard for improvement. She is a single mother and she wants her daughter to go to college so that she can have a better future than her own. To support herself and her daughter, Rosaura has worked selling used clothing in a roving market, and from that job she makes money for her home, her daughter's school and herself.

However, Rosaura would like to start selling new clothing to have more variety to offer her clients. This is why she is requesting a loan for US $550 to be paid in 6 months. With that money she will be able to buy merchandise in Villa Hidalgo, where clothing is manufactured and sold for less money, so she can sell it in the small market. With your help, Rosaura will be able to support her daughter's success.
