A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cement, sand, and rocks to improve the area where her kitchen is located, as well as to buy more clothing.

Rosa Marina's story

Rosa, 21, has a 9th-grade education. She lives with her two-year-old son and her life partner.

She has made a living selling clothing for four years. She learned about this work from a friend, who gladly decided to teach her about the business in order to have some extra money at home. She sells clothing for both men and women to meet the needs of her clients, who are sometimes very demanding in terms of what they will buy.

She has applied for a loan to buy cement, sand, and rocks to improve the area of her home where her kitchen is located. She will use the other part of the loan to buy more clothing.

With the help of this loan, she will be satisfied to see a beautiful and adaptable kitchen. She will also be pleased to see her business grow with this investment.

She plans to have a large business and to become a true businesswoman, which will allow her to give her son a good education for his social development.
