A loan of $775 helped to purchase perfumes and cosmetics for subsequent sale.


Daisy Paola's story

30-year-old Daisy sells personal care products, and first started her business via referrals from her neighbors. She has been learning the business and thanks God that it has been a success.

Daisy sells her products at the children's school in the mornings and in her neighborhood in the afternoons. Her main challenges are the lack of capital available to invest in merchandise, and the crime level in the sector in which they live. She is married and her husband works as a taxi driver. They have three children aged seven, eight and nine who attend private school.

With the loan, Daisy wants to buy more perfumes and cosmetics to achieve a higher income. Her goal is for her business to progress successfully so that she can help her husband with household expenses.
