Lizbeth's story

Lizbeth, who is 37 years old, is married and has 4 children. She lives with her entire family in a comfortable house that they rent for a monthly payment. From there, she works every day to improve her economic income and to be able to have a better quality of life. Lizbeth's work consists of selling cosmetics. She sells every type of article through a system of catalog sales or by exhibition, since she has a display case in her house, where customers come in search of perfumes, powders, creams, deodorants, or some useful accessory. She has had this business for a little more than four years. She works alone and earns very well. For now, she continues working in the sale of cosmetics, and she likes what she does. Furthermore, she states that her economic earnings are assured with the customers that she has managed to establish with the passing of the years. She hopes to continue working and expand her business to continue progressing, since she wants to offer her children the opportunity to access a quality education and have a professional career. At this time, she is requesting 500 PEN. Therefore she is grateful for the opportunity that is offered to her to access the loan that she needs to continue with the achievement of her goals. With the amount she has applied for, she will buy principally cosmetics such as powders, creams, perfumes, and other accessories.
