Rosa Maria
View original language description ↓
Rosa started her business because she's always liked sales and she wants a better future for her children. Rosa wants to provide them with a good education, and her husband's salary alone was not enough to do this. Rosa began in February of 2002, first by selling meals from her home. At first the business went very well, but as time passed Rosa's sales declined considerably. In response, she tried other sectors and a neighbor encouraged her to sell beauty products by catalog. Rosa has done very well in this business, and she's also begun to sell shoes of all types.


Rosa needs a loan of $1,000, which she'll repay in 6 months. She'll use the loan to buy merchandise, meeting her clients' demand for beauty products and shoes, and providing them with good service.

Rosa inicio el negocio porque siempre le han gustado las ventas y por el deseo de que sus hijos tuvieran un futuro mejor y una buena preparación y para eso no era suficiente con el sueldo de su esposo. Comenzó en Febrero de 2002 , primero comenzó vendiendo comidas en la parte de enfrente de su casa, al principio le fue muy bien pero con el paso del tiempo sus ventas bajaron considerablemente, por lo que probó con otras opciones y una vecina se animó para que vendiera productos de belleza por catálogo con lo cual le ha ido muy bien y últimamente también ha comenzado a vender zapatos para toda la familia.


Ella necesita un prestamo por US $1000 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar mercancia lo que le va a permitir surtir los pedidos de productos de belleza y calzado ya que tiene clientes pendientes para seguir dándoles un buen servicio
