Jessica Isabel's story

Jessica is a 29-year-old woman and she has many aspirations to make her beauty salon more prosperous in the coming years.

Her story began when she was 13 years old, studying beauty at the academy in the afternoons because in the morning she worked in a salon. She worked there for 9 years. Months later she became independent, and now she has had her own salon for 6 years. She performs her work alone since her customers want her to provide the service. She carries this out from Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Her main difficulty arises should she suddenly become ill. She is married, and her husband is an auto mechanic who works with his father. They have three daughters, two of whom attend public school.

Her dream is to have her own salon but in her home, which is being built, and also she would like to put in a spa. For this reason she wants the loan, to invest in her salon.
