María Del Carmen's story

Maria, 34, is married and is the mother of three children aged 11, 3, and 1 years old. Five years ago, she began her business selling products by catalog in order to generate income to contribute to the household economy. Her main customers are family, friends, and neighbors in the area. She says that the main advantage is that she can be productive without neglecting her children and her home. She is currently seeking the support of this loan to purchase merchandise in bulk such as perfumes, cosmetics, accessories, face and body creams, and more to take advantage of the discounts she gets which will allow her to improve the profit margins for each sales she makes. She will also get to retain more customers because she will be able to deliver their products immediately which encourages their decision to purchase. Maria just wants to continue with her activities to ensure financial stability for her children, allowing her to provide better education and living conditions.
