Luisa Fernánda's story

Luisa, 19, makes a living as an independent vendor by selling products from a catalogue. She found out about this work from a friend who invited her to a conference of a business that sells food from a catalogue. However, Luisa didn't see potential in that publication, so she decided to start selling beauty products and so far she's had very good results. This work allows her to earn the income she needs to pay household expenses.

Luisa is young, active, enterprising, and thriving. She has an attitude of overcoming obstacles and she has the motivation to look for ways she can move forward. This is why she is requesting this loan to buy wholesale merchandise such as perfume, cosmetics, accessories, personal hygiene products, and more. Then she can improve the discounts and promotions they offer and stock up her inventory for the Christmas season with a larger variety of items to satisfy her customers' needs and tastes. This will be reflected in increased sales and will positively and directly affect her personal income. With this extra income, she can keep moving forward and achieve her primary goal of opening a store for merchandise that will be successful and recognized in the area. This will also allow her to enjoy the future with economic stability and a better quality of life.
