A loan of $400 helped to buy perfumes, clothing and cosmetics.

Lorena Del Carmen's story

Lorena is 31 years old, and from the city of Managua. A vendor by trade, she has been selling cosmetics and clothing for 10 years. She started this business when she heard a talk about selling cosmetics by catalog, and little by little began getting her own income. She added the sale of perfume, and currently sells clothing also.

The month of May is an excellent season for selling clothing and cosmetics, as Mother's Month is celebrated. People are in constant search of gifts, and she doesn't want to miss the chance to sell her products. She is needing the loan to buy perfumes, clothing and cosmetics. Her goal is to succeed in owning a store selling a variety of personal products, offering various brands and making them accesible to everyone.
