Dina's story

32-year-old Dina is a single mother to a 3-year-old boy. She currently lives in her parents' house, since she's responsible for looking after them and taking care of them alongside her little son. Dina's work consists of selling cosmetics by catalog, especially perfume, body lotion, powder and other accessories. She has a wide variety of products in stock, since she gradually accumulated them during several sales campaigns. Besides, she's able to get them at reasonable prices and then sell them, and she's able to earn very good profits from these sales. She has been in this business for 5 years. She offers her products to her friends, relatives and coworkers, since she also works as a nurse in one of the town's hospitals. What she enjoys about her work is that it
allows her to have time for other activities, and in addition, it generates good profits. On this occasion she'll request 2000 nuevos soles. She's thankful to the people who make her loan possible and provide her with the opportunity to keep on working in order to achieve her goals. With the requested amount she'll purchase cosmetics comprised of perfume, powder, deodorant, face cream and hand cream, among other items.
