Maria Viglenice's story

Maria has been through many hardships in her life; nevertheless, her drive to get ahead in life has allowed her to overcome them and continue progressing in her life. Maria is a single mother with 6 children, and she has always searched for ways to give them a good quality of life. The father of her children abandoned them a long time ago without contributing anything to the household income. Maria had to earn her own income while being in charge of the care of her children. She had the idea of selling personal use products such as lotions, creams, deodorants, and other products out of her home. Thanks to this business, she can earn an income. Maria is well recognized in her region because of the good customer service she offers her clients, which has allowed her to gain a large number of customers.Some of them put in orders for large quantities of merchandise. Maria wants to take out a loan to buy products for personal use in order to fill a customer’s larger order. Maria hopes that her business’s sales will continue increasing and that she will be able to continue offering her children a good quality of life. Her dream is to have a large business that would create jobs and provide her with a lot of income, which she would use to give her kids a good education and send her older kids to college.
