A loan of $925 helped to buy sewing supplies.


Rosa's story

The client, Rosa, is 39 years old and single, and is the mother of two children. Currently she lives with a younger son and is the head of her household.

She has earned a living in sewing for several years because she has the knowledge needed to offer services to her community. She sews to order, mends a variety of garments, and makes clothing, curtains, and other items. She also has a contract to make curtains and covers for a banana company. She devotes a lot of time to her business without neglecting her family, and during the busy season she benefits other people by giving them work.

Rosa wants to improve herself and grow in her business, because she's looking for contracts with other companies to make uniforms. That way she'll improve living conditions for herself and her family.
