Rosalba is from Mexico. She has 3 children. She needs a loan of $825 to purchase more clothing to sell.
Rosa has been selling clothes for six years. She started little by little, and now she has her own stores. She knows that in order to increase her sales, she needs to have them well stocked with a varity of products.
She has three children, Jesus who is 7, Victor who is 6, and ten-month old Ximena. It’s a big family and they have more expenses now than before, especially because two of her children are going to school and she needs to pay for their uniforms, fees, and school supplies.
For the moment she does not have any problems with her business because she’s working it little by little. The only challenge is when she doesn’t sell anything. That’s when she get depressed, but she tries to find strength to continue getting ahead with her family.
Mrs. Carmen says that she will invest the loan to increase her profits. “If I stock up my store with a wider variety of products, my profits will be better and I will be able provide a better life for my children. I will also be able to start a savings for the future and for their education, and in case anything were to happen, I’d like for my children to feel secure. But my intention is teach them to work and to be the owners of their own business.”
“My dream is to grow my business, to have it very well stocked with all sorts of clothing to offer to my clients.” She started by selling women’s clothes, and now she would like to add girls, boys, and men’s clothes too.
She will use her profits to pay for ther children’s school. Rosa knows that that’s the only way to get ahead, because they can’t expect anyone else to help them. She says that they need to get ahead on their own, and if the situation is hard, they can make it a little bit better.
