Leonor Narcisa's story

Leonor Arguelllo is 45 years old and lives in the urban area in Las Orquideas; she is divorced and has four children who are all married. She lives in a cement home which has basic services (water, electricity, etc.). Leonor began as a saleswoman when she was very young as her whole family works in sales and she wanted to do the same to earn her own income. She invested her savings in clothing, perfumes, creams, and home products. She also works selling Yanbal (a company that helps women to sell cosmetics and earn a commission). She will use this loan to buy perfumes and clothing to have a greater variety of products to sell. In the future, she would like to buy a car to carry her merchandise to sell.
