A loan of $775 helped to buy beauty products for her business.


Lila Estani's story

Lila is a 56 years old. She has three children, all of whom are grown up and no longer live with her. She lives in her own house with her spouse, in the rural part of the Motupe district. They only have a basic electricity service and they have to fetch water from a bore-hole (ground water). The majority of the population lives in these conditions. Lila's main business activity is selling beauty products (cosmetics). She runs this business from her home and has a well established clientele. She started this business 10 years ago, so she is now very experienced. The amount of credit granted will be 2000 PEN and will be used to increase her working capital (purchase of beauty products). Lila wants to take advantage of the Mother's Day holiday, to increase the income for her household and thus improve their quality of life. As far as beauty products are concerned, there is no real competition in the area.
