A loan of $1,600 helped to buy 50 pounds of silk thread to sew hammocks, 45 pounds of thread to make hammock handles, and the rest to buy children's, women's and men's clothing since this is the period when she has the most demand.


Rosa Mirian's story

Rosa, 39, is married and has two children. She makes a living doing domestic duties in her home, making hammocks, rugs, curtains, hats, and other things. Her parents taught her to work with crafts. She has also been selling clothing for two years. She and her husband go out to sell items on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays in the surrounding towns.

Rosa also worked in the sales of tortillas and shaved ice snacks. She has always had to work to move forward with her family. Her husband makes a living cultivating corn, beans and vegetables.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 50 pounds of silk thread to sew hammocks, 45 pounds of thread to make hammock handles, and the rest to buy children's, women's and men's clothing since this is the period when she has the most demand.

With this investment, she can have all the material available that she needs to make hammocks and sell clothing so that her income is better. Among her plans is to build a more dignified house.
