A loan of $1,025 helped to buy wholesale perfume, cologne, and other cosmetics.


Marina Luz's story

Marina is 53 years old. She makes a living selling perfume, cologne, and cosmetics from a catalog as a beauty products promoter. She is a traveling saleswoman, visiting public and private institutions, neighborhoods and homes to offer her products.

This loan will be her second with the institution. Marina will use this loan to buy wholesale perfume and cologne, which are on special offer, so that she will have them in stock for her business. Her reason for applying for this loan is to have a variety of products to satisfy her clients.

The challenge which Marina confronts in her business is serving her clients efficiently. She will use the earnings to improve her family's quality of life, because this is the only source of income which allows her to maintain herself and succeed alone.
