A loan of $525 helped to buy beauty products and kitchen utensils.

Maria Del Rosario's story

María del Rosario, 38, sells beauty products and kitchen utensils via catalog. She started 17 years go with help from a lady that offered her catalogs and this is how she started to get her first customers who were her girlfriends. With help from recommendations from them she earned higher profits and was able to sign up with more catalog sales firms.

Six months ago she started also selling kitchen utensils via catalog and she’s done very well generating higher sales with the help of other ladies that help her sell. She’s now succeeded in opening her own business at home while still attending to her sales from place to place in San Pedro Sacatepéquez.

Her wish is to continue increasing sales to have a variety of products and to be able to buy a display case for her merchandise to be a source of support for her family since she has four children attending a local school. She’s requesting this loan to buy beauty products and kitchen utensils via catalog.
