Santa Isabel's story

Santa Isabel, 33, lives in Las Orquídeas. She says she chose the line of work selling cosmetic items because it nets good profits and it allows her to spend more time at home with her children. The work she does is on a varied schedule. She goes out to sell to her customers house to house in order to be able to pay her household expenses and pay for her children’s schooling. She fears becoming ill because she’s separated from her husband and she’s the only one striving to move her minor children ahead and seeing that they attend public school. She will use the loan to buy cosmetics, perfume and clothes. In future, she wants to finish improving her house and invest in more things to sell.
