Dúo Sonrisas Group's story

Dúo Sonrisas

Vastti Gocabed is this group's representative. Vastti works selling Mexican products such as: shampoos, creams for face and body, beauty treatments, generic medicines and Tupperware products. She sells her products in a store in her parents' home. She also travels door-to-door to deliver items that have been ordered. Vastti is the mother of three children. Five years ago, her husband died in a motor vehicle accident. It is for this reason that she works a lot and desires that her children will study and become professionals.

Vastti is grateful to lenders at Kiva and Fape for all of the support that she has been offered through this loan. She is requesting this loan in order to buy more products for the summer season. She will buy suncreens, hydrating creams, shampoos and vitamins to increase defenses.
