Anonymous's story

This client lives in the El Paraíso sector. She started her business selling personal use products when they told her that there was a firm that would give her the products on credit. She started investing small amounts of money and gradually improved her sales. She currently sells cosmetics.

She’s also been able to use some money she had saved to invest in a small restaurant where she sells lunches. Gradually her income has been improving since she’s a single mother and has a son attending public school.

One of her difficulties is that she is handicapped so she’s unable to work at 100%. She wants to use the loan to buy cosmetics, perfume, cream and foodstuffs to sell lunches and to improve the merchandise se sells to her customers.
