Rocio Maribel's story

Rocío is a 33-year-old woman who is a housewife and the mother of two children. Her new business is a sewing workshop.

Rocío is an enterprising, strong, and determined woman. Her success in business has led her to look for new activities for generating more income to improve her family’s quality of life. She works all day, Monday through Saturday.

Rocío has a tan complexion, medium height, and dark hair. Her previous business was a kiosk where she sold candy and cookies. Now she is looking to finance a new business, a sewing workshop that will diversify her activities and allow her to compete in the market. For these reasons, Rocío is requesting a loan so that she can open her sewing workshop and be able to gain a foothold in the market.
