A loan of $1,675 helped to buy Amway products.

María Fernanda's story

María Fernanda, 22, has worked from a young age to buy her personal things and contribute to the household expenses. She began working at a friend's fast-food business and later decided to go out on her own to sell health, beauty, and household products from Amway. She works every day, selling her merchandise around the neighborhoods of Rionegro, Colombia. Her medium-term goal is to set up a store to sell her products along with clothing and accessories.

Currently she wants to expand the products she sells, so she's requesting a loan to buy stock for the holiday season.

Her biggest desire is to become a successful micro-entrepreneur and be able to give her mother a better quality of life.
