A loan of $325 helped to buy cosmetics to later sell.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Maria del Carmen, 21, works in retail selling cosmetics. She started her business more than 2 years ago, and with it she has been able to get ahead with her family and, what is most important to her, continue with her university education.

Maria considers herself to be a very responsible and hardworking woman. Over the time that she has been selling cosmetics, she has been able to generate a well-established clientele. She would like one day to open a store where she could offer all of her products for sale.

Maria requests a loan to buy more cosmetics, so that she will be able to stock up her business with merchandise.
