A loan of $1,000 helped to buy raw materials.


Rosaura's story

Rosaura is a client who is 52 years of age, married, and a mother to three children. She currently lives with her husband and one son. She has a lot of experience doing what she does, and is a very hardworking woman with great desires to get ahead. For many years, she has had her business of cutting and sewing garments such as pajamas, swim suits and more, with the goal of becoming financially independent, so she can help her husband with household expenses.

Now she also makes things for the home with recyclable materials, which she teaches to a group of seniors in the same community. She counts on her husband's support in making decisions related to her businesses.

She is applying for a new loan in order to buy raw materials such as cloth, threads and others, in addition to repairing a sewing machine that is giving her trouble.
