A loan of $1,275 helped to buy perfumes, makeup, and creams to sell.


Maribel Rocio's story

Maribel, 40, is unmarried and has one son, age 6. She says she started her business selling Avon cosmetics 5 years ago. It all started when a friend encouraged her to try this method of earning money, as she could not work anywhere. Maribel says that her business is doing very well, as her neighbors are her regular customers. Maribel works in the afternoons, when she goes out to promote her products.

Maribel's goal is to continue with her business and to gain more customers, therefore she requires more capital to buy more cosmetics. With this loan she will buy perfumes, makeup, and creams to sell.
