A loan of $2,500 helped a member to buy beauty products.

Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro Group's story

Ema Soler, age 40, sells beauty products. She started because a friend introduced her to this business. In the beginning, she started working only in her free time so that she did not neglect her children. She has now won over many customers. Her work has become a source of income to help her husband support their family.

Also, she is now involved in buying clothes that her own customers will later buy from her. She wants to devote herself to this field because it generates more income for her.

For now she will use the money from the loan to buy beauty products. She will be taking advantage of the fact that Mother’s Day is coming soon, and her sales will be better. She wants to buy perfume, cologne, and cosmetics to offer her customers.

The group she belongs to is called Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro (Women Seeking A Future). She is the secretary of the group, which is comprised of nine members.
