A loan of $1,675 helped to buy personal use products such as perfume, deodorant, lotion and other products to offer more variety of products to her clients.


Maria Viglenice's story

Maria sells personal use products, she started 8 years ago when she was abandoned by her husband and she had to be responsible for the home expenses where she lives with her six children. The great economic difficulties that she has faced at home have strongly affected the quality of life of her children. However, Maria hopes that with her efforts she can improve the situation and get her family ahead. The main disadvantage is that there is a lot of competition selling the same products and Maria doesn't have much working capital to differentiate herself from the competition. Looking to expand the variety of products that she offers to her clients, Maria requests a loan to buy personal use products such as perfume, deodorant, lotion and other products to offer more variety of products to her clients. Her dream is to be able to buy her own house and open the business there. She also hopes to improve the quality of her current home and offer her children a better quality of life and education.
