Gina Elizabeth's story

Gina, 51, is married and her husband is retired from the armed forces. She has adult children who are independent. Gina started this activity because of the lack of employment opportunities in the country and she wanted to find a job but was unable to. Since her husband’s retirement she’s had to struggle daily to provide daily bread for her home and this is why Gina decided since then to sell cosmetics and has done very well. She currently works afternoons selling the products she has to her neighbors. She wants to use the loan to buy perfume, creams, colognes, deodorant, talc, etc. Her dream is to sell her products along the entire Ecuadorean coast.
