A loan of $650 helped to purchase medicines and personal use products.


Mariuxi Elizabeth's story

Mariuxi is 21 years old and lives in Las Orquídeas. She sells cosmetics like mascara, lipstick, eye pencils, and liquid and powder foundation. This business is profitable and also helps her to have more time in her home with her children. She carries out this work alone at different hours. She goes out house to house selling to her customers so that she can pay for her household expenses and her child's studies. She is afraid of getting sick as she is separated from her husband and struggles alone to get her child ahead as he is a minor and attends public school. With this loan, Mariuxi wants to buy medicines for her children and invest 20% in items in order to sell her products. This way she will be able to improve her income.
