Vista Hermosa Group's story

Flor is another member of the Vista Hermosa group. She is 26 years old and only completed school through the third grade. She is married to Jose Luis who is a day worker and they have two children. Flor tells us that 4 years ago she decided to start her own business selling cosmetics and perfume to make a little extra money to help out her husband with the household expenses. She started out selling to family and neighbors, and little by little she expanded her clientele. Today she doesn't only sell in her own community but she also goes to nearby communities to offer her products. She goes out in the afternoons to show catalogs to her clients and take orders. She then buys the products and delivers them to her customers. She is very happy because her sales have given her an opportunity to provide her family with a better quality of life. A loan from VisionFund will give Flor the opportunity to purchase a variety of cosmetics (lip liners, foundations, eye shadows, nail polish) and perfumes to continue making sales. She wants her business to make progress every day and hopes that in the future her children will be able to study for a profession.
