Melania Del Socorro's story

Melania is 43 years old. She is a hard-working woman, and for several years she has been selling cosmetics and clothing. Melania started this business with the savings from her previous work as a seamstress. Combining these funds with some help from her husband, she managed to invest into a small amount of cosmetics inventory. She sells cosmetics from Avon catalogs, but her sales volume is low, so she wants to invest more in order to increase her sales.

Melania would like to improve the flooring in her house because it is in poor condition. She wants to install a ceramic floor and thus she needs to purchase the necessary materials in order to start the work. Her husband is a bricklayer, which is a advantage, since they don't have to pay the labor costs. Melania is happy about the improvements she has been making to her home.
