Paola Yomira's story

Paola is 24-years-old and is characterized as being joyful, sociable, honest, and charismatic. She lives with her partner that works as a day laborer and her small daughter who is two years and nine months old. A year ago Paola began a business selling cosmetics door to door in order to help her partner with household expenses.

She has observed recently that her business is producing good earnings and this has lead her to want to invest more capital in products like cream, deodorants, perfumes, and lotions. In this way, her sales will increase giving her more income for her home.
