Lili Del Carmen's story

Lili is a partner in the Jerusalen II communal bank, and she lives in the San Martin Province and region in the Tarapoto district. She works selling Omnilife natural products, clothing and shoes. She does her work by picking up and delivering merchandise to the small scale merchants in the Number 2 market and by visiting clients in their homes. She began working because of the inspiration of a friend who saw that by purchasing goods on sale she could sell at a profit and offer deals to her customers. With this 1000 sol loan, which she will repay in 6 months, she will invest in the purchase of products including aloe ver, magnus, optimus, alo beta, various kinds and sizes of shoes, clothing for children, men and women, and bedding. This will allow her to carry a variety of merchandise and to be able to offer her customers what they want. Lili is 47 years old. She lives with her husband and 3 children who support her in her business. She now feels confident, dedicated and optimistic, with a strong desire to progress. Her goal is to grow the business and to sell wholesale.
