A loan of $1,025 helped to buy perfume and cosmetics.

Ingrit Abigail's story

Ingrit’s a young mother who generates her own income selling perfume, cosmetics and products in general to her customers, friends, family members and people because of the responsibility and love she has for her little boy. She shows them catalogs so they can buy from lipstick to expensive costume jewelry from her.

She currently lives in family members’ house who when they saw her alone with her child provided a roof and shelter for her. However, she works this way to cover her own expenses and needs.

She needs the loan to be able to buy merchandise to stock her business so she can take the products directly to the various places she goes to and do direct sales. For her, this means a quicker turn-over of her working capital. She relates that generally Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas are the days of highest sales. She usually sells on credit so needs working capital to buy new merchandise from the new catalogs that her customers order from.
