Margie Audrey's story

43-year-old Margie lives in the Perimetral of Guayaquil (A peri-urban area along the Perimetral Highway where everyone that lives there is poor). She sells Yambal products (a company that gives opportunities to entrepreneurial women to sell products at a low price). Margie began working, because her husband’s income was not enough to support their three kids. With effort and dedication she began selling to her acquaintances the perfumes, make-up and personal use products from the Yambal catalogue. She goes out every day to promote her products via the catalogue to the people she knows. With the loan, she wants to buy perfumes and make-up to continue her sales with Yambal. In the future, she hopes that her children live comfortably and to have a local for her business.
