A loan of $800 helps to buy lotions and cosmetics to sell so she can earn an income and enable her son to continue his studies.


Delfina's story

Delfina went to school up to the age of twelve but was not able to continue her studies due to her family's financial problems. She has a son who goes to the village school. Her life partner works in a public institution.

Delfina has been selling lotions for 3 years, having learned her trade through a friend who motivated her to start up her business. She travels all around the village selling her goods door to door.
She works between 8 am and 4 pm.

She needs the loan she has applied for to buy lotion and cometics to sell so she can earn an income and enable her son to continue his studies.
Delfina's ambitions are to make improvements to her home and enable her son to have a professional career.
