View original language description ↓
Mrs. Lourdes is a member of the Banco Comunal las Activas community bank, and lives in the Calleria district of Ucayali. She is 33 years old and has three children. Her husband is a driver, but his income is not enough to cover their living expenses. For this reason, with her first loan of $100USD from Manuela Ramos, she decided to open a small beauty parlor.



Currently, she has a small establishment where she cuts and colors hair, gives manicures and perms, etc. Her main customers are children, given that she exudes charisma while performing her services.



With the current loan, to be repaid over a period of five months, she will expand her business location and purchase additional supplies such as mirrors, an electric trimmer and other basics needed to run the salon such as scissors, talc and hair creams. Lourdes is very happy to have three healthy children and to have been able to move along with her business. Thanks to her endeavor she will be able to continue to help with her childrens’ educational expenses.
