Mercedes
Mercedes, 59, lives in the city of León. She has three children who are all independent. She works making the city’s beautiful women even more beautiful: she’s a stylist and dressmaker.

She started her business five years ago. She used to work sewing but one of her daughters studied hair dressing and cosmetology and motivated her to work together. She took a beauty course and learned how to apply makeup and to style hair. Later on, she opened a beauty salon.

One of the activities she enjoys the most is doing hair and makeup for brides and fifteen-year-olds because it reminds her of her own daughters and she enjoys getting them ready for that very special day very much. She also tells us that some of her most demanding customers at the moment of getting their hair cut are men but they always seek her out because of her kind treatment and the speed with which she takes care of them.

She needs the loan to buy hair color, straightening creams, treatments, electric shavers for men, hair dryers and hair straightening combs. This loan will allow her to buy the work tools she needs and to buy the new machines she needs. In her future plans is expanding her beauty salon and turning it into a full spa but for the moment she just wants to improve its infrastructure and buy the supplies she needs for work.
