Rosa Cándida's story

Rosa, 53, studies social work. She is married and her husband works for a government institution as he is an agriculturist. They have three daughters who are studying at university.

She has a new American clothing retail business and has been working at market for 2 years. Previously, she sold products from a catalogue. She learnt the clothing sales business from her cousin her rented her a stall in the market and this was how she decided to start in this business. The market is a 15 minute walk from her home. She works alone as her daughters are studying and her husband works so they do not have time to help her.

The loan that she is requesting from fundación Campo is to buy more clothing for men and children as she is lacking these and they are want her customers ask for the most, but also to display they at her market stall as two months ago they ran out of stock and have had to be ordered individually. Stocking these products will give her more income, as she will have the clothes the customers are looking for available.

Her dream is to have a bigger store and a well stocked clothing business with lots of customers buying and going away satisfied with the stock. With the earnings she wants to continue supporting her daughters through their university courses and help them achieve their dreams to become professionals. This is the only inheritance that Rosa says she will leave them.
