A loan of $275 helped to buy embroidery supplies.


Rosa Cristina's story

Rosa Cristina is 31 years of age and is married. She studied six years of elementary school and has two children, one of whom is a student. She works in the weaving and embroidery of traditional cloth and blouses, a business which she started off by taking on small jobs. This generated income for her, and she now has 10 years of experience. She has the support of her husband, who is also a weaver.

Rosa Cristina has requested a loan which she will use to buy fabrics, lining and thread to improve her embroidery production. She wants to have a stable business and these products sell well, and she hopes that in the future she will be able to have a group of women working with her in her business.
