She started her business in February of 1997 thanks to a friend from work. The friend invited her to a demonstration on catalog selling of recognized brands of cosmetics. Augustina liked it very much, and she started to sell to her neighbors, friends and co-workers. Since then, it has gone very well for her, and now she organizes bingo games with the same products. Every day her sales have grown thanks to her customers who recommend her to other people who she can then sell to. She needs a loan for $250 (3500 MXN) to buy products to be able to fill her customers’ orders. This way she can give them good service and keep them as customers.
