A loan of $1,150 helped to buy clothing, school shoes, and inflatable pools.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa's husband works as a lathe operator in a plastics company and he benefits her because he buys the products that she sells from his company at a more favorable rate. Presently, their two children are working. Rosa's business invariably consists of selling plastic products for the home and clothing by customer request. For this loan, she wants to invest in school supplies, clothing, new shoes, and inflatable pools in order to take advantage of the school season, and in passing, the approaching summer; she will also use this loan in help herself with sales in order to generate more income and to support her family.
