Aquilina's story

With a loan of 26,250 pesos, Aquilina will be able to buy products and another hairdryer for her beauty salon. She is also planning to add a different touch to the salon’s décor, as she says that “I’ve had the salon for five years, and my customers would like a change to the ambience.´

Aquilina is a single mother of four children, who are aged 14, 12, 4 and 10 months. Her three oldest children go to school, and Aquilina herself looks after the baby while she attends to her business. She wants to finish high school so that she can study accounting at university, and knows that through study and work she can help her children to get ahead.

Aquilina is a hard-working woman, and always has a smile on her face. She understands that a good atmosphere and special customer service is what makes people come back to her beauty salon every week.
