A vast of Filipino women gained enough desire to get involved in this industry because of the relatively high income while at home, in a flexible working time and independence from the employer-employee relations.

Furthermore, women are enticed into consuming and marketing of these consumer goods offered by the direct selling companies. This study focuses on the real situation of Filipino women lured to become a dealer of the direct selling business while capitalists’ profit at their expense.
