Valeria Viviana's story

Valeria lives in the south of Guayaquil in an area called Isla Trinitaria. She is single and has no children. She started her business of selling cosmetics by catalog thanks to her aunt who sells cosmetic products and one day she told Valeria to help her sell them and she liked that very much.

At present Valeria has become independent with the sale of cosmetics by catalog. The way that she works is to go around to various places in the city offering the products among friends and acquaintances. Valeria, for the time being, has not had any problem with regard to delinquency and hopes to be able to continue in this manner.

With the loan she plans to buy beauty items like lipsticks, eye shadows, perfumes, creams, etc.
