Luisa Fernanda's story

Luisa Fernanda is a young entrepreneur, who upon seeing that there were great financial difficulties in her home, decided to look for a way to generate income for her household. But as she wasn't finding opportunities for employment and generating income, she decided to begin selling personal products.

This was how, with a small loan from a friend of hers, she secured the the working capital to stock a first few units of perfume. With the earnings from these, she reinvested in order to increase her working capital. In this way her business began to grow little by little.

Currently she has a great number of customers; which allows her to have sales, through which she generates income to contribute financially to her household. This has allowed her to offer her parents the opportunity to enjoy a better quality of life.

Looking to have her business keep growing, Luisa Fernanda is seeking a loan to buy personal products and continue satisfying her customers' orders.

Her greatest dream is that this business will allow her to contribute even more; so that the financial circumstances in her home improve, and her parents can overcome the many difficulties they have. In addition, her intention is that this source of income will allow her to keep paying for her studies, and in the future progress financially.
