A loan of $800 helped to sell cosmetics through a catalog.


Alicia's story

Alicia sells cosmetics, perfume, kitchenware etc. through a catalog. She has been in this business for three years and is very happy to be selling this type of product. She says "thanks to selling my products, I have met more people in my town and in neighboring towns and I have made more friends. I am gradually gaining more customers and I sell my products quickly".

Alicia stocks up with products through the Internet and they are delivered to her home. She is very grateful for this loan because it will enable her to have products in stock. Alicia is married to Ramón, who is a driver, and they have three children. Their eldest child is in high school, their second child is in middle school and the youngest is in elementary school. Alicia's goal for her business is to become an authorized distributor since there isn't one in her town.
