A loan of $350 helped to buy make up, lipstick, perfumes and shampoo.


Helmis Del Socorro's story

Helmis sells cosmetic products like lipstick, fragrances for men and women, shampoo and make up. She has had her own business for 8 years and contributes economically to the upkeep of her home.

Thanks to her friendly attention, her business has improved. She sells on credit and for cash and demand has risen so that she is currently in need of financing to be able to buy an order of cosmetics, which will then allow her to increase her sales.

Before she had her business, she was a beauty student and currently runs an independent business.

She is the mother of a school age child and is married.
