A loan of $700 helped to buy fabrics, zippers and sewing machine maintenance.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa is requesting a loan to start up the this season's planting. She will farm corn with her family. She will also invest part of the money in tailoring. Specifically, she will buy fertilizer and herbicides and clean the land. For tailoring, she will buy fabrics, zippers and sewing machine maintenance.

She considers that the previous loan helped her to maintain a machine and keep it in good condition. She also bought fabric to make uniforms. Her immediate family is supported and her income has improved.
