Rosa Nelly's story

Rosa Nelly started her business selling second-hand clothing in 2007, following in her mother's footsteps. She started off selling one bundle of clothing every three months to some neighbors and as they got to know her small business, the orders increased.

Nowadays, Rosa Nelly sells three bundles of clothing every three months, and intends to use the requested loan so that she can sell five bales every three months. Little by little she has made a name for herself because of the quality of her inventory, as well as for her punctuality in meeting her commitments. She feels very happy about the development of her business.

Rosa Nelly along with her mother, Josefina, manage the business. This is in addition to the support from her husband, Eliseo, who is an employee in a health care center. They form a family with two children, who are in primary school. They are committed to providing them an education in life, and a professional career.

She is a very enterprising and hard-working woman, born in the city of Monterrey, Mexico.
