A loan of $1,500 helped to build a room and to buy fabric for her tailor shop.

Rosalina's story

Rosalina is a 36-year old woman who has two children. She started working as a tailor 12 years ago and has owned her tailor shop for 7 years. She learned this profession from her mother. She lives with her husband and their children, a 13-year old daughter and a 14-year old son.

She makes mops and other products that housewives use, such as aprons. In order to make these garments she needs fabric that she buys at different stores and brings back home by bus in approximately 35 minutes. Once made, she takes them to two different cities for sale.

She plans to use the loan to build a room and to buy more fabric for her tailor shop. Thanks to this loan, she will improve her quality of life and increase her income. Her goal is to provide her family with a better home and her children with an education that will allow them to work in an institution or service in the future and to have income to support themselves.
