A loan of $400 helped to buy nail polish, creams, shampoo, perfume, lipstick, etc.


Rosa Ivania's story

Rosa, 49, is a humble merchant from the city of León. She has three children, all of whom are adults.

She works as a janitor at a school, but she also sells cosmetics. She started this business four years ago when she heard a speech about selling cosmetics from a catalog. The first products she sold were perfume and creams. She needs this loan to buy nail polish, creams, shampoo, perfume, lipstick, etc.

Rosa fights every day to earn an income so that little by little, she can buy construction materials to improve her humble home. Another one of her projects is adding the sale of clothing for children and adults to her business.
