Ileana Maria's story

Ileana Maria M., 45, lives in the Medardo Andino neighborhood. Her husband is an electrician and he helps her with household expenses. They have two daughters, who are 14 and 15 years of age, both of whom are in secondary school.

For the last 10 years she has sold cosmetics and, among her plans for the future, is opening a store with a feminine focus. However, a challenge she faces is the lack of available financing or cash flow because some of the customers haven’t paid for their orders.

However, she will continue to work with new customers under revised payment plans so that she can avoid having payment defaults.

She is asking for funding to buy cosmetics so that she can enlarge her business thereby producing better economic conditions that will be favorable for her new family projects.

She is a responsible woman, who has many acquaintances, all of whom attest to her good character.
