A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase merchandise.

Rosalba's story

Rosalba is 32 years old, married, and for the last year has worked making athletic clothing together with her sister who sells the clothing at different locations in the area. The two work making the clothing Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays they distribute the orders to their various customers. During the week they are in charge of the merchandise that they need. Rosalba seeks this loan in order to purchase fabrics because her customers have increased and they request many athletic outfits, as hers are quality and preferred by her customers. Earning these weekly sales she is able to economically support her household, in addition to paying additional costs that arise in the high school her two children attend. She is very motivated by this work as she is now able to cover expenses that once only her husband could manage.

This is Rosabla's second loan cycle. She prefers to work with the Fundación Mujer (Women's Foundation) for their good service, low interest rates, and because they come all they out to handle the request. She started in this line of work due to the high level of unemployment in her region, and this work has granted her a way to get ahead personally and decide to continue as long as she can because it is a good business.
