A loan helped to buy hygiene and beauty products to sell.


Maria Berenice's story

Maria, age 46, is married and lives in the Bello municipality.

She currently devotes herself to selling retail products. With this she has managed to get resources to contribute to the support of her household. She is an enterprising person with vision and devotion. She always looks for opportunities that allow her to progress.

That is the reason she is requesting the loan to buy hygiene and beauty products to sell in order to take advantage of the discounts given and to offer a greater variety to satisfy her customers' tastes and needs. This way she will be able to have a better profit margin from her sales.
