A loan of $450 helped to buy merchandise.


Ma Rosa's story

Rosa M. is a very serious and responsible person. Her husband works outside of the city and is absent for very long periods. He often brings her used clothing to sell from home so that she can help out financially since they have children who are in school and they need many things in order to continue in their studies.

Rosa is requesting a loan so that she can invest more in her used clothes business since her husband only provides her with merchandise once a month. She would like to be able to offer her customers a wider range of clothes. In this way, her income will increase and she will have the opportunity to provide her children, who are the most important thing in her life, with a better quality of life.
