Maria Antonieta
View original language description ↓
Maria is 26 years old, a single mother and lives in a rented house along with her three children, who are 12, 7 and 2 years old.


She sells beauty products, something she has been doing for the past 4 years and because of which, has developed certain abilities for selling. She works almost the entire day and not a moment goes by when she is not selling her products, wherever she is. She likes this work because there are no fixed working hours and thanks to this, she can do other activities such as helping out at a bakery. The only difficulty for her is that she needs to find clients who are able to pay the debts they incur with her when they order products.


Her efforts are motivated by her three children who need her support; the fact that she does not have a husband makes this responsibility more difficult.


María requests a loan to buy products, which sellers are able to get at lower prices, so that she can meet her customers´ requests and have some product on hand, and also so she can open up a small store for selling her products from home.

María tiene 26 años, es madre soltera y vive en una casa alquilada junto a sus tres hijos de 12, 7 y el último de tan solo 2 años.


Ella trabaja en la venta de productos de belleza, actividad que realiza desde hace 4 años, por ello ha logrado tener práctica y desarrollar ciertas habilidades para ofrecer sus productos, prácticamente trabaja toma todo el día, no hay momento que no ofrezca sus productos en los diversos lugares que se encuentra, lo cual le agrada, porque no tiene horario, y gracias a ello puede dedicarse a otras actividades como ayudante de panadería. La única dificultad para ella, es tener que captar clientes con capacidad de pago, para que se endeude con sus pedido.


El motor de su esfuerzo son sus tres hijos quienes necesitan de su madre para poder desarrollarse, el no contar con una pareja hace difícil esta responsabilidad.


María solicita el préstamo para adquirir productos en promoción que son ofrecidos a las vendedoras a menores precios, lo que es un apoyo para atender los requerimientos de sus clientes y tener en stock algunos productos, y lograr tener en su domicilio una pequeña tienda de estos productos.
