Diana Maria's story

Diana is a person who despite her young age has had to go through various adversities in life. Just 29 years old and she’s a single mother head of household with a 6-year-old son because she was widowed when her husband died some time ago.

Diana is a teacher in a town and thanks to this activity is able to contribute income for the home. However, since her husband died she’s seen how her savings have dwindled down and she’s had to make the choice of taking on another job in addition to teaching.

Diana wants to start selling personal use items, an activity she learned previously when she did it to pay for her studies. Diana hopes that with this new activity she can generate higher income because she will teach classes for a few hours a day and she can use the rest of her time to sell merchandise.

Aiming to stock her business in order to sell products to her customers, Diana wants to buy personal use products but does not have sufficient capital to make these purchases which is why she hopes for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy personal use products like creams, shampoo and accessories, among other to have more merchandise to offer her customers.

Diana hopes that with this new activity in addition to her teaching she will be able to generate new income for her home and offer her 6-year-old son a better quality of life and access to a quality education.
