Gigi Del Rocio's story

Gigi is 46 years old and she sells Yambal products (Yambal is a company offering enterprising women the opportunity to sell products independently). She lives in Paraíso de Guayaquil, which is a semi-urban district with unpaved roads where the houses are located in the mountains.

She started selling Yambal products several years ago to help her husband with the household expenses now that they have two children of 12 and 5 years of age. She has started promoting the products using the Yambal catalog. Gigi sells perfumes, creams, deodorants, make-up etc. She travels around Paraíso selling the products to her acquaintances and friends. She does not have a fixed work schedule.

With this loan, she would like to buy perfumes, creams and make-up so that she has a greater variety of products. In the future she would like to fix up her house and increase her sales.
