Antonia's story

Antonia is 59 years old. She is single and lives in a low-income neighbourhood where the houses are very poor.

She makes a living selling cosmetics by catalogue. Every day she goes out to find clients. Somedays she has more success than others.

She is applying for her first loan to invest in her small business by buying more products of which she has few remaining. She will buy men's and women's perfumes, nail polish, lipstick, pressed powder, and other items which will enable her to cover her primary needs and expenses.
