Fidelina Petrona's story

Fidelina is a humble woman of 59 years of age. She is single and has two children who are 13 and 33 years of age. Only one of her children is studying and the other is working as a salesperson, selling cosmetics. 

Fidelina started working in sales  when she was 39 years old, with the help of a friend who gave the idea to join the Avon and Zermat line of perfumes and this is how she started to sell Avon and Zermat perfumes.

She is very happy because this business generates daily income. Her cosmetics are distributed in shops and she has regular customers. Her mother supports her in her business, and she receives further income from the salary she earns as a school teacher.  

She is asking for a loan to buy a variety of perfumes. She estimates that the loan will help her to buy perfumes of a different brand with the aim of growing her business and satisfying demand. One of her future plans is to establish another business selling just clothes. Her short-term goal is to further expand her business.
