Karina's story

Karina is 25 and is a hard-working young woman. She lives with her father, Luis, and her sister, Milagros, in their own home. Her biggest dream is to finish her studies in obstetrics, which she was working towards at a private university. A little while ago, her mother, Gina, passed away. Since then, she has worked tirelessly because she has to pay for her family's expenses. Her job is the sale of beauty products by catalog, and she works as a sales executive. She visits women of every age, who request various accessories from her. She has the most demand in June and July because of independence celebrations and also in December because of Christmas. She now wishes to have her own business where she can sell beauty products. Her idea is to work in a mall where she can have demand and be in public view. Now, as an account executive, she is in charge of 80 women who sell beauty products by catalog. She belongs to a communal bank, and this is her fifth business with Microfinanzas Prisma. She hopes for your collaboration so she can fulfill her plans. She promises to make all of her payments on time. She is grateful to be part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive. Karina will invest the requested money in the purchase of beauty products that are being requested so they can be ahead.
