Roberta Zenaida's story

Roberta is 18 years old. She is an informal saleswoman who sells beauty products, clothes and toys. She lives in a peri-urban area called Perimetral and works selling Avon beauty products, etc. Through her business, Roberta has been able to cover her expenses, promoting her merchandise in the area where she lives. She sells boys' and girls' toys, clothes and Avon cosmetics with the help of her mom. She would like to continue selling her merchandise and would like to use her loan to buy toys for the Christmas season since there is a high demand. She will also buy clothes and cosmetics for her female customers. In the future, Roberta would like to increase her merchandise and have sales premises so that she can make enough income.
