A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase cosmetics to sell.


Karen's story

Karen is 20 years old and is in a common-law marriage. She lives with her son and her husband. Karen wants to use the loan to purchase cosmetics that she can sell. She plans to buy a wide range of cosmetics so she can increase her turnover. She wants to sell her products for a good price at the local market, to run her business competently, and to earn higher profits so can achieve a better quality of life and a stable economic situation for herself and her family. This is Karen’s first loan with FUDECOSUR. She has not had any previous loans with government-run banks, but the loan FUDECOSUR is offering her has better terms and a much lower interest rate.
