Prior to owning her salon, Maria cleaned houses and provided health care services. These were just the means to saving up enough money to open her own business. After getting a job in a salon, she decided it was time to get her own beauty license and open a salon that catered to the Brazilian community. She has built incredibly strong ties within the community and is known for superb customer service.

With this loan from ACCION USA, Maria will be purchasing new equipment for her salon. This will help upgrade her current equipment but, more importantly, it will put her one step closer to future expansion of her salon. Her dream is to expand her spa services and build on the already glowing reputation of her salon.

In the end, Maria wants to provide herself with the opportunity to grow and have a strong foundation to rely on when she finally decides to retire.
