A loan of $375 helped purchase merchandise.


Maria Luisa's story

Maria Luisa started her own business because although she was working helping another woman, her income was not enough to cover her expenses. She decided to begin selling beauty products.
She started her business in May 2005, offering cosmetics to neighbors and family members from a catalog. At this point she has made a lot of progress, because she now uses some tips a friend gave her, like organizing lotteries with the cosmetics, so she earns more money.
She needs a loan of MXN $5,000, to be paid in 4 months, to purchase products and keep her business going.
