Faustina's story

Faustina is a 63-year-old widow. She started this business due to the shortage of jobs in her country. Faustina wanted to work, but was not able to find a job because of her age. Since then she made the decision to sell all types of cosmetics and has done very well. She works in the afternoons, offering products she has in stock to her neighbors.


With this loan, Faustina will buy perfumes, crèmes, colognes, deodorants, talcum powders, and other items.
