Rosa Judith's story

Rosa is an old and wise woman who has extensive knowledge about dressmaking and tailoring. She learned this trade by her mother's side and perfected it through years of experience. Despite never having taken any classes in the subject, one could say that she has more experience than anyone who has ever taken one.

She dreams of setting up a tailoring shop and using her knowledge in order to earn an income for supporting part of her family. She needs a loan to buy an overlock machine, coverstitch machine, tabletop sewing machine, and to remodel her shop. This will allow her to fulfill her dream of being an independent entrepreneur generating employment and earning her own income.
