Eugenia
With 10,600 Dominican Pesos Eugenia will be able to buy products to give her customers quality service. In the Dominican Republic women go to the beauty parlor at least once a week. There is a lot of competition in this type of business. In Villa Altagracia, the town where Eugenia lives, they charge customers 80 Dominican Pesos to do their hair. Having good products and offering service at such a low price is a big challenge.

Eugenia lives with her life partner, who works as a “motoconchista”, that is to say that he provides taxi service with his motorcycle. Consequently, his income is very low. Together they have three children, ages 13, 9, and a 6 month old baby. The two older children go to school.

Eugenia’s dream is to have a well-equipped beauty salon. This would allow her to offer her customers good service, and then the customers would not change to another hairdresser. She wants to keep working so that her children go to school and have a better future.

Con 10,600 pesos Eugenia podrá comprar los productos para ofrecer un servicio de calidad a sus clientes. En la República Dominicana las mujeres asisten por lo menos una vez a la semana al salón de belleza y la competencia entre este tipo de negocios es bastante alta. En Villa Altagracia, el pueblo donde vive Eugenia, se cobran unos 80 pesos a las clientes por arreglarles el pelo. Tener buenos productos y ofrecer el servicio a un costo tan bajo es un gran desafío.

Eugenia vive con su pareja, quien trabaja como “motoconchista”, es decir, que ofrece servicios de taxi en su motocicleta, por lo que sus ingresos son muy bajos. Juntos tienen 3 hijos de 13 y 9 años y una bebe de 6 meses. Los dos niños más grandes van a la escuela.

El sueño de Eugenia es tener un salón de belleza bien equipado que le permita ofrecerles un buen servicio a sus clientes y que estas no se cambien a otra peluquería. Quiere seguir trabajando para que sus hijos asistan a la escuela y tenga un mejor futuro
