Rutt's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more beauty products.
Rutt is 38 and lives in the home of a family member with her 2 children. Faced with the need to have an income, she received information from a friend about selling cosmetics through a catalogue. This is how she signed up to receive these products and sell them. In the beginning it was very hard for her, because she had to go door to door to get customers and select trustworthy people to sell her products to. Seven years have passed since then and she now has considerable working capital which allows her to maintain her business. She has a display case in her home where she can show her clients the variety of beauty products from known brands that she has. This way, she brings in more sales. She enjoys her work because she has a knack for sales. She wants to expand her capital even more. Her neighbours and a friend invited her to join the solidarity group that she is currently part of in MFP. She has proven to be punctual in her payments and has gained the confidence of her peers so she can continue to access future loans. This is her tenth opportunity. This time, her loan will be invested in the purchase of more merchandise in order to sell and take advantage of the party season in her country.
