Enma Gina
Thanks to her sister who persuaded her to start-up a business, Gina started to sell beauty products from a catalogue. At the beginning, she wasn't able to sell a lot, but now after three years she manages her work well and is even able to sell products from two brands. Before she used to offer a laundry service from her home.

Alongside her small business, she helps her community by collaborating in the dining room which is maintained by the state of her country. Every day for the last eight years she cooks together with a group of friends and colleagues for the entire community. Thanks to this everyone benefits by having access to a more economical menu.

With her income Gina can help with her children's education and invest more in her business buying beauty products and offering them. She is thinking of opening up some internet stations in her house in the future in order to have a more stable income.

Gracias a su hermana quien la motivo a empezar un negocio, Gina se anima a vender productos de belleza por catálogo. Al inicio no lograba vender mucho pero ahora, luego de tres años maneja mejor su trabajo y puede vender incluso productos de dos marcas. Antes se dedicaba a ofrecer servicio de limpieza y lavandería a domicilio.

Paralelo a su pequeño negocio ella ayuda a su comunidad colaborando en el comedor que el estado de su país mantiene. Todos los días desde hace ocho años cocina junto a un grupo de unas compañeras para toda su comunidad. Gracias a ello todos se benefician al tener acceso a un menú más económico.

Con sus ingresos ella puede ayudar en la educación de sus hijos e invertir mas en su negocio comprando productos de belleza y poder ofrecerlos. Tiene pensado abrir unas cabinas de Internet en su casa en un futuro para poder estar más estable.
