Felipa
Felipa is a woman who has suffered the abandonment of her husband. However, her daughter, with whom she lives, motivates her to keep going every day. Felipa had acquired the techniques of cosmetology since she was very young, but over time she realized that she needed to prepare herself to do the job like a professional. So, for the past 20 years she has been providing personal beauty services to women. Thanks to time, experience, and savings, she has succeeded in opening her own beauty solon, in which she works every day from 9 in the morning until 8 at night. She really enjoys the time she spends in her business because her clients always walk away beautiful and happy with the results of their visit.

Felipa's ambitions include having a spa in her city's residential area, since most of her clients come from there just to have her attend to them with her very own hands; her work is quite well-known. She is seeking a loan for the first time and hopes that her presence will help her win the confidence of her group and the organization. She plans to use the loan of 1000 soles to buy beauty products and the necessary tools of her trade.

Felipa es una mujer que sufrió el abandono de su pareja; pero su hija, con quien vive, la motiva a seguir adelante cada día. Desde muy joven aprendió algunas técnicas de cosmetología, pero con el tiempo se dio cuenta que tenía que prepararse para ejercer esta labor de forma profesional, por ello, es que desde hace 20 años está involucrada en el arreglo personal de las damas, y gracias al tiempo de experiencia y ahorro logró abrir su propio salón de belleza, el cual atiende todos los días desde las 9 de la mañana hasta las 8 de la noche. El tiempo que le dedica a su negocio lo disfruta mucho, ya que trata de que sus clientas salgan muy lindas y satisfechas del resultado obtenido en la sesión de belleza. Sus ambiciones son de lograr tener un spa en lugares residenciales de la ciudad donde vive, ya que la mayoría de sus clientas vienen de estos lugares solo para ser atendidas por sus manos, pues su trabajo es muy reconocido. Felipa está solicitando un crédito por primera vez y espera que su permanencia sea muy favorable para ganarse la confiabilidad de su grupo y de la institución. Los 1000 soles estarán destinados en la compra de productos de belleza y herramientas necesarias para su labor.
