A loan of $900 helped to purchase Avon cosmetics to resell..


Gladys's story

Gladys is 26 years old and single. She lives in a very beautiful neighborhood and works with her brother selling athletic clothing. This loan is to purchase Avon cosmetics, which she has been selling for just over a year now. The business is going well and she uses her income to help support her parents. Gladys' inspiration for the business was a friend whom she studied with, who invited her to sell cosmetics. She wants to take advantage of the timing as customers are coming now with requests. Gladys hopes that every day she can increase her income, so that she can continue to help her parents. In time she'd like to have her own business.
