Bianca Maria's story

Bianca is 26 years old, she is single, she has no children and she lives with her parents. She started a small activity 6 years ago, selling cosmetics, perfumes and clothes by request. She has started with two thousand córdobas, money she had in her own savings from her previous job in a distribution center in the market; when she left that job she started selling on her own and with her parents’ help.

Nowadays she has succeeded in having a better stocked-up inventory thanks to an increase in her sales and by gaining new customers and she is enjoying better living conditions as she has her own income and she can now support her parents.

Hers is a simple house and for this reason she is requesting a loan to Afodenic in order to put up a concrete wall, building it little by little. She will buy stone, sand, cement and iron to start the works and to succeed in enjoying better living conditions in her house, as living under a safer roof will make her happy.
