A loan of $2,800 helped a member to purchase nail polish, eyeliners, perfume, eye shadows, and foundation.


Miraflores Group's story

In Tierra Blanca a group of five friendly and happy people has been formed.

Georgina is one of the members of this group. She is 30 years old and has only been educated to secondary level. She is married to Irving, who works as a mechanic. Georgina says that she has been selling cosmetics via catalogues for more than five years. She began by selling door to door but thanks to her effort and perseverance she is now a consultant and has women who sell these products and earn commission on the sales they make.

What she likes most about her business is that she earns her own money, she has made some good friendships, and it gives her the opportunity to grow.

Her short-term goal is to increase her sales in order to win the car the cosmetics company she sells for is offering as a prize.

She is a very enterprising woman who works very hard to achieve her objectives. She has requested this loan from VisionFund in order to invest in purchasing a variety of cosmetics (eye shadows, lipsticks, foundation, perfume, eyeliners, and nail polish).

Georgina is grateful for the support this loan will give her and her group.

The other members of the group are: Teresa – cosmetics sales Alvaro – taxi services Rosalia – linen and bedspread sales Esmirna – linen, shoes, and clothing sales

In this group: Georgina Yara, Teresa, Alvaro , Rosalia, Esmirna
