María Cielo's story

María Cielo is a 42-year-old woman, is married, and is a mother to her 18-year-old son. Currently, she works selling merchandise via catalog, including clothes, lingerie, and imitation jewelry. She started this business thanks to the support of her family and with it she has been able to obtain income that goes towards the support of her home.

She is enterprising and hardworking and wants to progress so she can continue to support her family financially. This is the second loan that she has asked for and she wants to use it to buy more of her merchandise (clothing, perfume, accessories, and lingerie). In addition, she will be able to increase her sales and offer a greater variety of products that will satisfy the diverse tastes and needs of her customers (most of whom are friends and family members).

Her main goal is to have a large amount of goods and expand her clientele with good customers. In addition, she hopes to increase her sales so she can improve her family's quality of life with her financial support.
