A loan of $1,200 helped to invest in buying clothing, shoes, perfumes and plastic products in bulk.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa continues in her business selling plastic products and clothing, which she sells both to order and retail. She buys her products from a supplier in a factory who gives her a good price. The products are good quality and last well even though they are plastic.

Rosa's husband continues working as a cook. One of her daughters got married and the other is still studying.

With this new loan, Rosa will be able to buy more clothes, shoes, perfumes and plastic products which are in great demand this season because of La Purísima* Her goal is to achieve more sales and make better profits which will cover her basic and personal expenses.

* (an annual celebration of the purity of the Virgin Mary when those with the means to do so are expected to throw a celebration for their neighbors)
