Eldith's story

Eldith, 52 years old, is a single mother and alone took care of her three children. Now her children are older and are independent. She owns her own house which she shares with her two sons and the family of one of them. Eldith's job consists of selling catalog cosmetics. Her specialty is colognes and perfumes. She goes out onto the street in search of her friends, neighbors and family members to sell some products or to deliver those things that have already been ordered in advance. She has been performing this work for approximately ten years and she does it alone since she now only pays her expenses and her children support her occasionally. Eventually she sells food on weekends since she lives close to a sports park and this allows her to have a constant flow of customers during those days. What she likes about her work is that it gives her time to be able to rest and to be in her house doing her work. It's going well since she does not generate a lot of expenses and what she sells covers the basic expenses. At this time she will request S. 3000. It is for this that she is thankful to all the people who provide the opportunity to access a loan that allows her to nail down her plans. With the amount requested, she will buy more products to have in stock, like perfumes, powders, body creams, cosmetics, among other items.
