A loan of $500 helped to buy cosmetics and household products.


Sonia Beatriz's story

Sonia Beatriz G. D. P. is 23 years old. She is a very responsible and hard-working mother. Sonia lives together with her husband, who works as a mechanic, and her 5 year-old daughter.

Sonia works selling products from catalogs such as: perfumes, make-up, kitchen accessories, etc. Her business is quite stable since she has quite a large number of customers who consume, every month, the products that she sells. She makes her sales in an itinerant manner, going from house to house, showing customers her different catalogs. This is how Sonia makes a living and how she supports her husband with their household expenses. She is requesting a loan so that she can buy a larger variety of cosmetics and also different products to offer her customers who mainly buy her products on credit. The fact that they buy on credit means that Sonia needs a certain amount of money to invest in her business.
