A loan of $750 helped to purchase Omnilife-brand health products.


Bertha Irene's story

Bertha sells Omnilife-brand health products. She lives in the suburbs of Guayaquil, Ecuador, and is a 35-year-old single mother with one son. She started her business with severance pay from her previous job and with savings from selling the products. At first she bought the products for her own health, and once she saw the results she starting promoting and selling them. She does her work without any kind of help and, like any business, hers has setbacks when people pay on credit and never pay it off. She also worries about crime since she transports products and money. Her 3-year-old son is her inspiration, and she spends all her free time caring for him. With the loan she plans to purchase Omnilife products like Omniplus, Complejo B and Aloebeta to increase her inventory. Her goal for the future is to gradually grow her business network.
