Vitaliana's story

Vitaliana is a 47-year-old woman who is currently separated and has custody of her two children. She and her children live together in the house that she built after many long years of struggle. Despite the difficulties, she does not stop working various jobs, but the one that she is most involved in is cosmetics sales. Her 10 years of experience have helped her gain loyal customers who order from her on a bi-weekly basis. Vitalina’s goal is to increase her orders so that she can win prizes that the company gives out to the women with the highest sales, thus motivating them to keep growing as entrepreneurs. For this, she has set up a stand in her house to offer products, that way, she no longer has to walk door-to-door and expose herself to harsh weather conditions. Vitalina is the founder of her group. She is currently in her fifth loan from MFP, and she hopes to keep working alongside her group members, who have worked together responsibly. With the money that she is requesting, she will purchase wholesale products because as a promoter, she has the chance of obtaining a greater quantity of products at a reasonable price.
