Mujeres Rumbo Al Progreso Group's story

Violeta's sister-in-law was the one who taught her how to sell beauty products. At first she worked as an assistant, but little by little she became independent and offered her products to friends and family to establish her own customer base. Now she also sells cosmetics, colognes and hair color products. Through her work she is able to help out with household expenses, especially daily food costs for her children. She is about to set up a new business which is the sale of cell phone cards and virtual recharge. She will use the loan to buy cards for this business which is in much demand. Mrs. Violeta is a member of the communal bank "MUJERES RUMBO AL PROGRESO" which is comprised of 10 members that live in Puente Piedra in Lima, Perú.
