Blanca Estela
View original language description ↓
Blanca lives in the Lourdes neighborhood and runs a beauty parlor there. In addition, she sells hair care products and cosmetics to the customers who come see her to round out her income. She counts on these activities to support herself and her family . This loan will enable her to buy products cheaper in bulk and free her from the irregular service of her current suppliers and thus provide better service to her customers. This loan will generate more income for her family. Translated by Alexis Hult, Kiva volunteer.

Actualmente la solicitante vive en una colonia de Lourdes, tiene una sala de belleza y al mismo tiempo , tiene una venta de artículos de belleza y cosméticos los cuales le generan un ingreso extra, aparte del servicio que presta , vende productos de belleza a los clientes que la visitan, la solicitante depende directamente de esta actividad y al invertir con el préstamo que se le daría ella podría prestar un mejor servicio y no depender de los proveedores que le llevan el producto, ya que es mas caro y no con la frecuencia con ella lo necesita y además generaría mas ingresos para su familia.
