Pictured at the top: Rosa Maria Alutriste Hernández (right) sells herbs, chillies and dried produce at a market in Mexico.

“We earn enough to eat and live comfortably,” Rosa says. “I am my employee, and I am my employer. That's what I would like for my children too.”

Rosa took her first loan from microfinance organisation and Oikocredit partner FinLabor six years ago. "When I receive a loan, I can pay the suppliers faster and order new products,” says Rosa.

Rosa feels supported by FinLabor as they provide loan payment assistance without being intrusive.

Pictured with Rosa is loan officer for FinLabor Eunice Ismerai Piña Alfonso.

An Oikocredit partner since 2011, FinLabor stands out from its peers due to its small loans, which have an average value of a few hundred US dollars.
