Oshin's story

Oshin is 21 years old, single, and lives at her parents’ house with her siblings, her mother, and two nephews. She decided to sell a variety of cosmetics such as perfumes, aromatic colognes, body crèmes, lotions, lip pencils, Rimmel mascara, as well as women’s accessories such as earrings and necklaces. All of her merchandise is shipped from another city in large boxes on a scheduled date. She travels through the streets of her neighborhood in search of customers and then sells her products for cash or on credit. Oshin has been in this line of work for four years. She works alone and is very pleased that she has been successful to this point. Oshin enjoys her work very much because it allows her the free time to take care of the household chores without feeling rushed. In addition, she has learned to gain the respect and trust of her customers by treating them well and offering them a huge smile.

Oshin is taking this opportunity to request 400 PEN. She is grateful and pleased to know that she continues to have the financial support she needs to advance her business. The amount she requested will be used to buy merchandise such as perfumes, crèmes, earrings, necklaces, and other accessories so that she can continue her sales.
