A loan of $775 helped to purchase make-up, eye shadow, lipstick, creams, perfume, slacks, and blouses.

Viviana Karina's story

Viviana still sells beauty products and clothing from a catalogue, an activity which she had started several years ago, although she only sold cosmetics. Over time she has had better sales by including clothing. She runs her business by herself since she makes runs through different sections of Libertad looking for new clients. One of the advantages she has is that the products she sells are well-known, which makes it easier to make sales. She is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise and to have stock. One of the advantages of doing this is that when she purchases merchandise on sale, it is more economical for her. Additionally, having it for samples makes it easier to sell. She will purchase the items she sells the most, for example, make-up, eye shadow, lipstick, creams, perfume, slacks, and blouses, etc. She hopes that the loan will help her business continue to grow, slowly but surely.
