María Saraí's story

Maria, 20, is a very dynamic young woman. She enjoys participating in community events and is already thinking about a future home. She is very respectful of other people and people like her charisma and appreciate her. Maria is still living with her parents. She studied until 8th grade at a local school and was always recognized for her aspirations to get ahead and be someone in life. With the profit from her sales, she helps her parents purchase medicine as well as food and other family necessities.
Maria has a business selling cosmetics. She learned the trade from a friend who taught her how to distribute products under catalog sales. She then kept working, encouraged by the income.
The loan will be invested in the purchase of products such as cosmetics, shampoo, hair conditioner, hair dyes, nail polish, creams, etc. She explains that demand increases every day and people are ordering new products. Selling more products will provide increased income for her and her family. She also hopes that her business, located at her home, grows so that it can cover basic needs.
Her dreams are for her business to grow day by day and to be able to offer the right products to people demanding them. When she marries, Maria hopes to have a well organized family, with good income.
