Maria Delfina
View original language description ↓
Maria Delfina is married and has two daughters, 11 and 15 years of age. She started the business because her salary was not enough. Then some acquaintances offer her the opportunity to sell shoes through catalogues and she liked the idea, because where she works they also sell, and she takes advantage to offer her merchandise. She started 3 years ago to sell shoes among her friends, and little by little she started selling more because at her day job she also has customers to whom she sells her merchandise. She has never been out of customers and her prices are accessible and she offers deferred payments. in fact, her daughters also help her sell among their friends and in this way she is able to increase her orders.


She requests a loan for US $475, which she will pay in 6 months, to buy merchandise and be able to cover pending orders because if she takes too long her customers may cancel their orders.

Maria defina es casada y tiene 2 hijas de 15 y 11 años. Inició el negocio porque con el sueldo que recibe del trabajo que tiene no le alcanza entonces unas conocidas le ofrecieron integrarse a vender calzado por catalogo y le gusto la idea, porque donde trabaja también venden y aprovecha para ofrecer su mercancía.
Comenzó hace mas de 3 años a vender la mercancía del calzado entre sus amigas, y poco a poco fue vendiendo mas porque en el trabajo donde esta también tiene clientes y aprovecha para colocar su mercancía. Nunca le han faltado clientes y además los precios son accesibles y dan facilidades de pago. De hecho sus hijas también le ayudan a vender entre sus amigas y con eso logra incrementar sus pedidos.


Requiere un crédito por US $475 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar mercancía y poder sacar los pedidos que tiene pendientes porque si se tarda en surtirlos le pueden cancelar el pedido los clientes.
