Ninfa Del Rocio's story

Ninfa is a 45 year-old woman, head of the household since the separation from her ex-husband and tireless fighter who always looks for the best to offer her children. More than 13 years ago she started working as a seamstress, a job that she learned as an option to generate income that would permit her to cover the basic expenses of her family. She offers her services to third parties, for whom she makes shirts and work shirts. She works every day and has the advantage that she is known in the market because of her extensive experience. In addition, she has been offering her services to the same clients for 10 years who trust and know her products; therefore, she has work all year.

She is applying for the loan as support to buy supplies in bulk (fabric, thread, buttons, among others). Therefore, she will have prime materials available to fulfill the orders in an agile and opportune manner to be able to acquire more contracts. This will benefit her economy, upon receiving more income for each production.

Ninfa pushes herself for a medium-term future, strengthening and growing her business, so that it may have a greater fiscal and financial structure to be able to create new work opportunities and thus guarantee a favorable profitability to give her children quality university education. She dreams of seeing them become full and successful professionals.
