Girasoles Group's story

Rosa, 37, is a member of Girasoles Solidarity Group. She's single with no children and lives in the community of Zapotillo, Jamastran, in the city of Danli. She's a fighter and a very obliging person.

For 20 years she has worked making clothing, designing with various fabrics and colors, making her best styles, and practicing her techniques on a variety of garments that she makes. Rosa learned sewing when she worked in a "maquila" [foreign-owned factory]. She learned very well and in time decided to open her own small tailor shop. She works from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

With the help of this loan she's going to buy different types and colors of fabric to make different types of garment. With the help of this loan she'll be able to have enough capital to be able to buy all the accessories she needs to make her garments.

This is the second loan Rosa has requested from FAMA and she has made her payments punctually.
