A loan helped to buy perfume, lotions, costume jewelry, and cosmetics.


Maria Jose's story

Maria Jose and her family live in the town of Puerto López where there are beautiful beaches and popular tourist attractions. The beaches are now deserted because of the Covid-19 emergency.

Maria Jose is a hardworking woman who, despite the difficult situation brought on by the pandemic, carries on for the wellbeing of her family. She earns her living selling Belcorp products (perfume, lotions, costume jewelry, cosmetics) through social media and in her home. However, now that the situation has improved, she has started to go out into the town to make sales as it is there that she earns more money. For Maria the loans are a great help as they provide finance for her business.

This loan will be used to buy perfume, lotions, costume jewelry, and cosmetics.
