Evelia
View original language description ↓
Four years ago, as she separated from her husband, she was not able to receive money for the support of their children of 10 and 7 years of age because he was not employed. She thus saw the need to obtain income from other sources. While she was looking for a job, she saw newspaper advertisement for an opportunity to sell cosmetics through a catalog and went to the interviews. She currently has a group of more than 30 persons that sell the cosmetics.


However, the orders that her sales people place are many and the money that she has is not enough to fill them all. This is the reason for her request of a loan of USD $650 which she will repay in six months. With this money, Evelia will be able to advance her business as well as her children.

Hace 4 años al momento de su separación, su ex-esposo no dio dinero para la manutención de sus dos hijos de 10 y 7 años, porque no tenía empleo. Así que ella vio la necesidad de buscar el sustento por otro lado. Y mientras buscaba un trabajo. Vio en el periódico la oportunidad de vender cosméticos por catálogo y acudió a las entrevistas, actualmente ya cuenta con un grupo de más de 30 personas que venden los cosméticos.


Sin embargo los pedidos que le hacen sus vendedoras son muchos y el dinero con el que cuenta no es suficiente para surtirlos todos, es por eso que está solicitando un crédito de US $650 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y con este dinero Evelia podrá sacar adelante su negocio así como a sus hijos.
