A loan of $2,300 helped to buy perfume and cosmetics.

Mabel Ismary's story

Mabel lives in Guayaquil. She started a business selling cosmetics like perfumes, creams, and make-up, etc. She is a single woman with two minor children. She puts forth great effort daily in order to give them the best. She has been father and mother to her children. They go to a public school.

There are a lot of people where she makes her sales, and it is a good sales opportunity. She works in her business alone, and she sells her products from the morning until five in the afternoon.

She wants to use the loan to buy perfumes, cosmetics, and creams in order to be able to increase her sales and to make her business grow. This way she will improve her housing in order to live better, and she will give her children an education.
