Ysabel's story

44-year-old Ysabel is a fighting woman. She lives with her husband Javier, with whom she has 2 children, who she raises in a house that she bought 7 years ago. 3 years ago, she thought about making some extra income for her family. It was in this way that she was convinced to try selling beauty products by catalog. She says that it’s going very well for her in her business. So, she constantly buys wholesale accessories, because in this way, she has stock assured for each month. This allows her to earn up to double price for each product. Now, she is concentrating on improving her sales in order to be able to have saleswomen throughout the city, and in this way, improve her daily earnings. She belongs to the communal bank “Las Brisas” (The Breezes). This is her first loan with Kiva, and she is happy to continue working with the members of her communal bank, who are very supportive, welcoming and responsible. Ysabel will invest the S/.1500 soles in the purchase of wholesale beauty products.
