Rosalva is a woman who likes to fight for her dreams. One of her dreams is to see her children going to college and having a greater chance of having a better quality of life than she did. This is why Rosalva started selling furniture three years ago. However, the sales of these type of products are very slow, and this is why she started selling clothing, which is what she does now. Little by little she has assembled a clientele who seeks her out to buy clothing from her.

However, Rosalva does not have enough merchandise to offer to her customers, and this is why she is requesting a loan for US $550, which she is willing to pay in a period of 6 months. With this money Rosalva will be able to buy clothing for the season to be able to offer it to her customers. With your help Rosalva will be able to succeed with her children.

Es por eso que Rosalva comenzó desde hace 3 años a vender muebles pero las ventas de estos productos eran muy lentas, fue por eso que comenzó a vender ropa, a lo que se dedica actualmente. Poco a poco se a ido haciendo de clientela que la busca para comprarle ropa.

Sin embargo Rosalva no cuenta con suficiente mercancía para ofrecerle a sus clientes es por eso que está solicitando un crédito de US $550 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y con este dinero Rosalva podrá comprar más ropa de temporada para poder ofrecerle a sus clientes. Con tu ayuda Rosalva podrá salir adelante con sus hijos.
