A loan of $525 helped to buy cosmetics.


Jesus's story

Doña Jesús is 43 years old, a single mother of three children, and they live in the community of El Carbonal in the city of Bonito Oriental, Colon. She began her business two years ago by selling cosmetics, which was started by a friend whom she helped make sales, and this was how she learned the business. Doña Jesús goes out every day to sell her products in different places in her community, and she does so with her oldest daughter.

The loan that Doña Jesús asks for will be invested in purchasing cosmetics, creams, and shampoos. With the support from the loan she will be able to stock up her business and in this way offer more products to her customers. Her goal is to be able to be a distributer of wholesale cosmetics and have her own shop. It is the first financing that Doña Jesús has asked for from FAMA and she hopes to be able to make her repayments on time.
