Los Innovadores Group's story

María Del Pilar is a member of the “Los Innovadores” (The Innovators) group. This group is in its fourth cycle. Most of the members are friends from the neighborhood. María Del Pilar is one of the group members. She has a spouse and two children. She works selling beauty products; she started in this business as an assistant to a girlfriend and this is how she gradually learned it and eventually started to work for herself. She currently spends five hours daily at work. In the afternoon she goes out looking for new customers. What she sells most are cosmetics, perfume and jewelry. What she enjoys most about her work is being able to relate to different people and on the other hand to be able to help her family with the money she earns, especially help with her children’s schooling costs. What she most wants is to become a beauty consultant. The current loan will make it possible for her to buy acquire beauty products that are on special promotion to subsequently resell. María Del Pilar wants to have a stable place to display her products and to do so would like to rent a space in some market; she hopes to do so soon. María Del Pilar is grateful for the support.
