Sandra Auxiliadora's story

Sandra is part of the Los Tamarindos Communal Bank which meets in the city of Portoviejo. She is married and has two children. She is a professor at the Technical University of Manabí, and has also worked selling Avon products for a few years. With help from the Foundation she has been able to grow her business. She buys perfumes, costume jewelry, and personal care products at wholesale and sells them through a catalog to her friends at work, most of whom buy things and pay her every month. Sandra will invest this new loan in the purchase of products. She has several orders to be delivered and the best sellers for men and women are perfumes. With this loan she wants to try her luck with the sale of Yanbal products, and she hopes that it will succeed.
