Ada Erlinda's story

Ada Erlinda is 34 years old. She is a single mother and has two children in her care. Her business is selling cosmetics. She has been in the business for more than 7 years and sells her products door to door. Owing to her difficult financial situation, she took the initiative to start her business herself and she sells her products in the afternoons. She sells her products through catalogs so that her customers can choose what they like. Ada is requesting a loan to use as working capital to buy perfume, creams, lipsticks, powders and other products. Her dream is for her children to manage to study at university and help her in her business.
