Edilma's story

Edlima, at 56 years old, makes a living as domestic staff in different family homes. To complement her income, she has also sold products via a catalog for 8 years. In this way she makes enough income to help her husband out with the household expenses and to help get her five children ahead.



Her drive, effort, and strength have motivated her to request a loan with the intention of buying a variety of wholesale items such as sweets, chocolate, cosmetics, perfumes, shoes, accessories, and others catalog products. This way she will have a greater variety of products available to satisfy the demand that increases at the end of the year, which is nearing. She will achieve better sales and more income for her family.



Edlima dreams of continuing with her business and making it more profitable and sustainable with time so that in the future she can enjoy a peaceful retirement without worries, she can improve her quality of life, and she can enjoy well being alongside her family.
