A loan of $500 helped to buy herbal aloe, multivitamins, natural fibers, and teas.


Ada Carmelita's story

Ada is single. She lives with her sister and brother-in-law. She is independent with her expenses. She has had her business of selling natural medicine (Herbalife) for four years. Her work schedule is from 8:00 a.m until 4:00 p.m. She will use the loan to buy herbal aloe, multivitamins, natural fibers, and teas (everything needed to prepare the different natural drinks).

With this investment she will have enough raw materials to work and generate the income needed to make the loan repayments, improve her financial situation, and to expand the variety of products that she offers her customers.

She wishes to have a larger place in order to improve the service she gives her customers and to keep working without any difficulties.
