A loan of $525 helped to buy fabric and yarn.

Santa Rosa's story

Señora Santa Rosa is married and 58 years old. She had no opportunity to study at school, and she has 6 children who do not go to school. She works doing embroidery on different garments and has been doing this work since she was young; so far she has 25 years of experience in this work. She counts on the support of her husband who works weaving traditional fabrics.

She decided to request a loan to be able to buy materials for embroidery, and thus to be able to improve their income. She is going to buy fabrics and yarns of different types and colors. She hopes to continue this work for the rest of her life.
