Daría's story

Daría, 33, lives with her husband and their 2 children. She has been selling cosmetics by catalog for 4 years. She was encouraged by her friends to undertake the challenge of starting the business. Now, she tells us that it is going very well for her, and she wants to expand her horizons. Daría is happy with this work because it gives her more income for her home, above all to pay for her children's education. Daily, after preparing the meal, her work consists of going out to present and sell beauty products. She occasionally gives credit, but only to persons who have earned her trust. The work allows her to use the time when she is not needed in the home. Daría is requesting this loan to buy more cosmetics and to have increased working capital. (The main things she will buy are lipsticks and eye shadows.)
