Tomasa
View original language description ↓
Tomasa lives in Guadalupe, Nuevo León. She is a very hard-working and enthusiastic married mother of three. Her family was the motivation in deciding to start her own business five years ago; since her husband's salary was so low they couldn't cover household expenses or their children's education. First, she started helping one of her girl friends in a beauty salon, and a year later, with the experience she gained, she opened her own shop.


Fortunately, the high-quality service she offers has helped her increase her clientele, but the size of her salon is too small to accommodate them all. So she is requesting a loan of $750, which she will use to remodel her shop and purchase supplies. She plans to repay the loan within six months. Tomasa and her family are sincerely grateful.

En la localidad de Guadalupe, Nuevo León vive Tomasa, ella es muy trabajadora y entusiasta, está casada y tiene tres hijos, ellos han sido el motivo por el cual decidió emprender su negocio hace 5 años, ya que con el bajo salario que recibe su esposo era imposible cubrir los gastos de su hogar y de la educación de sus pequeños, primero comenzó ayudándole a una de sus amigas en su estética y un año después, con la experiencia que había adquirido en el manejo de este tipo de negocios, abrió su propio salón de belleza.


Afortunadamente el buen servicio que ofrece le ha permitido incrementar su número de clientes, pero el espacio que tiene es insuficiente por lo que está solicitando un préstamo de $ 750 dólares que empleará en la remodelación de su local y en la compra de insumos, ella promete devolver esta cantidad en 6 meses. Se parte importante en el crecimiento de este negocio, Tomasa y su familia te lo agradecen sinceramente.
