A loan of $400 helped to buy cosmetics.

Rosario's story

Rosario, 24, is a single young woman. She lives with her parents and three siblings in Panajachel, Sololá.

She earns a living selling cosmetics to friends, family members, and other people in the town of Panajachel. She started this small business a year ago thanks to the advice of a friend who does the same work. The main goal of this job is to generate income to help her contribute to the family finances.

She's requesting a loan for 3,000 quetzals [GTQ] for working capital to expand the variety of cosmetics she sells, thus improving her income and also her customer service.

Her dream is to have a sales space to help her sell more and increase her income to improve the quality of life for herself and her family.
