A loan of $800 helped purchase perfumes, lotions and natural products.

Mirian Margarita's story

Miriam is 45 years old and sells natural products and personal products in the area of Paraiso de la Flor. She lives in a periurban area called Paraiso de la Flor which is located in an area characterized by its dirt roads and mountains.

She had been selling beauty products for 10 years but a year ago she decided to sell natural products and cosmetics because she needed more income. She does her work by walking the streets selling her products by catalog. She has a strategy of giving her clients credit when they cannot pay instantly. She sells perfumes, lotions, deodorants and Herbalife natural products and leaves early in the morning to cover the streets. One of the difficulties that she faces while walking in the area are the hills that she has to climb to reach her clients.

With this loan she wants to purchase more merchandise such as perfumes, lotions and natural products so that she can provide a greater variety to her clients. in the future she would like to see her four children graduate and she would like to have a stall to sell her products.
