A loan of $3,125 helped a member to sell shoes and bedspreads by catalog.

Las Divinas Group's story

Victoria is a 37 year-old single mother with one son. She is a hard-working woman who is also responsible for supporting her mother, who she still lives with. She helps with household expenses while her mother helps care for Victoria's son. Victoria sells bedspreads and shoes of various brands by catalog. She says she learned the business six years ago in order to support her son. She also works in a clothing store where she is paid on commission, but says that amounts to very little, which is why she learned the business of bedspread and shoe sales. She says that thanks to God, her sales are doing well. She buys her merchandise from authorized distributors in the area where she works. Victoria says that although she only makes a little selling shoes, it helps, so she has kept with her business.

She is requesting a loan to help her stock some more items for orders she has pending with customers, who she lets pay in installments so that it is not such a burden on them. Viki, as her loved ones call her, says that she really likes working with VisionFund because the repayments are not burdensome, so she has time to get the money together through sales to her customers.

The other group members are named Rosalinda, María Guadalupe, and Dora Elia. They will invest in the purchase of feed for rabbits and turkeys, and to purchase natural beauty products, handmade embroidery pieces, and cosmetics for catalog sales.
