Genesis Valeria's story

Genesis Valeria is 24 years old. She's single. She lives with her parents. They live in Manta, a beautiful city located alongside the Pacific Ocean, in the south of the province of Manabí, known for its beautiful beaches and exquisite cuisine, and which has been very much affected by covid-19.

She is a young woman who wants to get ahead through her own economic resources. For this reason, more than 1 year ago, she started selling Avon products (make-up, perfume, creams, nail polish, etc.) She sells to known clients and new clients.

Due to the pandemic, her sales decreased, and for this reason, she started a new business selling food delivered to houses.

This loan will be invested in the purchase of Avon products to reactivate her business.

Her hope is to live abroad with family members who have offered her help.
