A loan of $575 helped to buy cosmetics.

Blanca's story

Blanca is a very hardworking woman with a strong drive to get ahead. She’s married and has a little girl who has just started elementary school. She’s been selling beauty supplies like deodorants, cosmetics, creams, shampoo and items for the home of various brands via catalogue for a year.

She relates that she started the business because she noticed that other people who sold those products earned good profits and to help her husband she decided to invest the little capital she had set aside because she had very few customers. Now, thanks to God and to her drive to get ahead, she has many customers and the products she sells via catalogue sell very well.

She stocks up monthly at the authorized distributor. She says that she’s asking for a loan to continue investing in her business and she says that her dream is to set up a stable locale and open a women’s underwear shop at home so that her neighbors won’t have to go all the way to town and have to pay transportation costs.
