A loan of $525 helped to buy cosmetics.


Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil. She started out selling meat skewers, and later, because of her health, she started selling cosmetics to her friends. This is how she gets ahead with her family. She works alone from 8am until 6pm. She sells products such as perfumes for men and women, creams, and other items. Her difficulty is that when her illness recurs, it makes it difficult for her to sell her products (she is a patient who is living with HIV/AIDS). She is married, and her husband is a master electrician. They have a 10 year-old child who attends public school. With this loan, she will buy cosmetics and school supplies. Her dreams include: enjoying her family and a good quality of life, having her own home, and having a vehicle to get around and distribute her cosmetics.
