My name is Rita, I am 40 years old. I am married and live with my family.
I started my business 19 years ago, I am an entrepreneur, love sales, innovation and consider myself a very creative person.
My business consist on retail sales: gifts, cosmetics and accessories for woman, I sell by catalog and manage a network of 40 woman, I earn commission on their sales. With my savings I was able to buy a taxi, that my husband drives to provide additional income for my family.
My biggest accomplishment is to have formed and lead a large group of sales woman in Terramar and Mary Kay Cosmetics.
I need the loan for the taxi plates, which will help my husband as he will be able to bring extra income. The rest will be used to buy cosmetics - as selling cosmetics is my main activity.
