Karen Brigith's story
Karen is a 23-year-old girl who lives in the periphery of the city of Tulcán, called Jardines del Este. After finishing her secondary studies she found a way to help her mother. Her mother had been the only one supporting the household and her younger siblings, as well as a granddaughter. This is the reason why Karen started her business of selling cosmetics, an activity that has been able to earn her good income. She wants to boost it by investing more working capital, but to do this she needs help. She requests her first loan that she will invest in the purchase of perfumes, makeup, creams, deodorants, enamels, lotions, among other cosmetics. Karen hopes that her income will increase so that she can continue helping her mother who has done so much for her and she wants to reward her.
