A loan of $950 helped to buy supplies to make Halloween costumes.


Melba Rosa's story

Melba has made a living as a tailor for about 26 years, thanks to learning at a young age from her mother. Melba makes mainly outfits for events and also costumes. She has had a lot of recognition in the field for her high-quality work, which allows her to generate income to support her household and overcome the difficulty of being a single mother to her two children. The Halloween season is approaching, so Melba's looking for a loan to buy supplies, such as fabric and thread, to make Halloween costumes. Her dream is to make her business grow and be well known in the field. She also wants to be able to give her two children a better quality of life at home.
