A loan of $775 helps to buy perfumes, creams, makeup, and costume jewelry.


Angela Petronila's story

Angela Petronila is married and has five adult children. Her husband is a merchant and they live in Jipijapa, known at the “Sultana of Coffee”. This place was severely affected by the health emergency caused by Covid-19.

Angela is a hard-working woman who, together with her husband, tries to earn a living. Previously she sold legumes, but now she is selling Avon products (perfumes, creams, makeup, and costume jewelry). She continues selling using social networks and from her house where she has a display case. They suffered a great deal during the quarantine because they were unable to sell for many days. Now things have gotten better, and they hope they stay that way.

This loan is to buy perfumes, creams, makeup, and costume jewelry. They hope to continue with the help of the loans.
