Relfa De Lourdes's story

Relfa is 36 years old. She sells personal use products like Yambal (business that helps women sell cosmetics by catalog) brand cosmetics by catalog. Years ago she separated from her husband, and she had to get money to be able to support her young children. When they spoke to her about Yambal, she signed up and started selling their products by catalog. Now she works different schedules selling perfume, creams, and deodorants to her neighbors and acquaintances. In order to continue selling these products she wants to use the loan to buy perfumes, creams, and cosmetics. In the future she wants to finish building her house and have a place for her products.
