A loan of $1,000 helped to pay her daughter's college fees.


Sara Ruth's story

Sara, 50, is married and lives with her husband and two daughters, one of whom attends middle school, while the other is in college. She has been a seamstress for eight years and also sells catalog merchandise and gift bags that she makes herself. Sara needs a loan to pay for part of her daughter's college studies. It is hard for her as her daughter attends a private university, but she wants to do this so that her daughter can succeed and have better work opportunities.

Sara wants to keep working at her jobs, as sales have been good. Though this loan is not for her work, it would meet a need that the family must resolve. Sara wants this loan so that she can see her daughter follow a professional career. She chose Fundación Mujer because she is knows this is the only funding available to achieve her dream.
