A loan of $800 helped to buy cosmetics.

Maria De Jesus's story

María, 43, sells cosmetics in the city of León. She’s married and the mother of three children. Besides selling cosmetics she also teaches math at a secondary school. She’s been selling cosmetics for 8 years, a business she started with her own capital and with help from her husband. Most of her customers are at the secondary school where she teaches although she also has customers in banks and factories near her neighborhood.

She needs the loan to buy cosmetics because she has customer orders and needs to sell in order for her business to grow and to improve her income. One of her expectations is to open a minimarket at home. She wants to give her children a better future.
