Micaela Bastida Ii Group's story

Hellen, 38, is single with two children. For the past 5 years, she has made a living selling beauty products from her small shop every day. Hellen tells us that that she has gained loyal customers and is earning income to cover household expenses. In the future, she would like to have a shop of her own where she can sell beauty products and earn more income.
