Maria De Jesus's story

Maria de Jesus is an older woman and she can not get a job at a company because of her age. She wants to be useful and help her family with the household expenses. So she decided to start her own business at home. She sells cosmetics and she started her business in 1995. From that time on she has done very well. Every 15 days she does demonstrations of her products and this has helped her to get more customers and to sell more. She is a direct distributor for the company that she sells cosmetics for. Maria de Jesus needs a loan of $375 which she will repay in 12 payments that she will make twice a month. She will use the money to buy more merchandise and to have a better selection to fill the orders of her customers.
