Eulalia Bengolita's story

Eulalia is a single mother, 34 years old, who lives with her family in Playas. Four years ago in her neighborhood she began selling cosmetics, the products often found in a bazar, and jewelry. It was a smart decision since Eulalia is well known in her barrio. She works Monday through Saturdays from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. On Sundays she likes to rest and spend time with her children. Until now, Eulalia has suffered no complications in her work. For this she gives thanks to God.

Eulalia has 3 daughters who attend the local public school. With this loan, she will purchase merchandise, including jewelry, cosmetics, hair decorations, gift wrapping paper, etc. In the future, she would like to make improvements on her home, since it is made of canes. Good luck, Eulalia!
