Miriam's story

Miriam is a thirty-seven-year-old mother of a three-year-old son, who is her reason for living. Due to the lack of employment opportunities in her city of San Luis, Colombia, she decided to begin selling products through catalogs, which allows her to be available to take care of her son and to generate income for their sustenance.

She travels throughout her city searching for new customers so that she can sell her products and achieve a good profit. Her dream is to be able to establish her business in the city center, but she knows that achieving this will require time and discipline.

Currently she is seeking a loan so that she can buy new health and beauty products. Customers have asked her for these products on repeated occasions, but for lack of resources she has not been able to purchase them.
