Eveling Carolina is 28 years old. Her business is selling cosmetics. She has had her business for more than 3 years. It began as an option since she was out of work and not earning a wage that could defray her household expenses. She also has 1 dependent child to support, so she has to make her sales in people's apartments. This does allow her clients to make their purchases at more affordable prices. With the loan, she will buy lipsticks, face powders, nail polish and perfumes. She hopes to improve her business and to keep moving forward.
