Olimpia Yesenia's story

Olimpia is thirty-six years old and has lived for the greater part of her life on Isla Trinitaria. Her house is built out of concrete and has all the basic utilities. She sells feminine and masculine hygiene and beauty products out of a catalogue of recognised brands. She chose this activity because she likes being a saleswoman very much and she saw it would provide her with an income, which is why she signed up and started her business. For now, she works exclusively on order, so as not to have any unsold products on her hands. She works three days a week, since she only visits her customers when she has the order. What she sells the most are products such as perfumes, deodorants, make-up products, creams, and lipsticks. Since she has been doing this for quite some time, she would like to be able to offer more variety, which is why she will use the loan to buy more types of cosmetics as well as clothes to sell. This will enable her to show them to prospective customers and convince them to make an actual purchase. Her goal for the future is to open a shop in order to have even better sales.
