A loan of $1,575 helped to buy merchandise at wholesale.

Blanca Nely's story

Blanca, 57, is a married woman and mother of five children. She started selling merchandise via catalog five years ago thanks to a friend who taught her how to do this work. Her main customers are family members, friends and neighbors around the area where she lives. She offers body creams, shampoo and face creams, among others and uses income earned to contribute to her household economy.

Sometimes it’s difficult to pay some of her bills because her customers don’t make their payments. However, she’s learned to overcome these obstacles in order to continue. She’s asking for the loan’s support to buy merchandise at wholesale (body cream, cosmetics, perfumery, face cream, etc.) in order to improve her sales and increase her profit margin because she’ll be able to take advantage of discounts and buy products at a lower cost which will allow her to generate higher income to continue watching over her family’s well-being.

Blanca dreams with being able to use her work to continue moving forward and to reach her dream of owning her own store and to save up to buy a house of her own too where she can enjoy better quality of life and economic stability.
