A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase cement, cement blocks, and paint.

Edith Maria's story

Sixty-year-old Edith has a beauty salon in the front part of her house. She lives in a semi-urban area in the outskirts of Guayaquil, an area characterized by its poverty.
She has worked for 25 years as a stylist in her own beauty salon. She learned this work from classes and because she needed to support her son. She is separated from her husband. She works every day cutting and coloring hair and giving manicures and pedicures.
To improve her salon, she will use this loan to buy cement, cement blocks, and paint. In the future, she would like to have employees and have a spa in her salon.
