A loan of $1,000 helped for clothing, perfumes and creams.


Sirly Johana's story

Sirly, 24, lives in an urban zone called “Las Orquídeas” so called because when it was first discovered there were many orchids there. She sells Esika brand personal use items via a clothing catalogue.

She started to work because employment opportunities were few. She isn’t married but has a two-year-old son. She started working using a friend of hers i.d. number with one of these catalogues. When she got the opportunity to enroll as a seller herself, she invested money and bought clothes to sell to her acquaintances and friends. Now she doesn’t have a fixed work schedule because she works at all hours.

To continue with her sales she needs a loan to buy clothing and personal use items like perfumes and creams.

In the future she’d like to be a sales leader and be able to buy a vehicle.
