Mariana Catalina's story

Mariana lives in Suburbio, in the city of Guayaquil. She is divorced and has three adult children who live independently. Eight years ago, she started a business selling catalog cosmetics. She makes her sales by travelling to different parts of the city, offering her products to friends and acquaintances. Mariana has, up to now, not suffered any problems with crime and she hopes to be able to continue not to. She plans to use her loan to buy beauty products such as lipsticks, eyeshadow, perfume, creams, etc. Her dream is to be able to buy some stands and display her products in her home.
