A loan of $800 helped to purchase perfumes, creams, and cosmetics to sell.

Alejandra Elizabth's story

Alejandra is 43 years old and lives in the suburbs of Guayaquil (an urban area where the majority of the inhabitants are merchants). She sells personal products through Yambal, a company that helps women work with catalogue products at a low cost.

In order to be able to help her husband economically, she began to sell products to her neighbors and acquaintances. Little by little, over the years she has maintained a sufficient clientele to earn money. She works different schedules, selling perfume, creams, and cosmetics.

With this loan, she wants to purchase perfume, cosmetics, and clothing to sell. In the future she would like to make improvements to her house.
