A loan of $800 helped to purchase cosmetics.


Mercedes Viviana's story

Viviana is a 21-year-old young woman. She has been working for five years selling products through orders and by catalogue. Viviana also works helping her parents in their business. They bake bread in their home, and when it is ready she goes out to distribute it and sell it from store to store.

Viviana will invest this loan into the purchase of beauty products and personal care products to sell door-to-door and to her customers. She hopes to someday have a storefront to sell these products from in order to get ahead and continue her studies.
