Alfakelly
With a loan of 26,250 pesos, Alfakelly will be able to buy hair products such as shampoo, conditioner and straightening lotion, as well as a new hairdryer for her beauty salon.

Alfakelly began this business three years ago, and it has been a great challenge. Although she really enjoys what she does, the competition is fierce, and the fact that electricity services are poor in the country also hinders her work. Nevertheless, as a marketing student she knows that good customer service is what makes the difference. This is why she wants to buy another hairdryer, so that her clients do not have to wait as long.

Alfakelly is married, and has two children aged 8 and 3. Her daughter is in the 5th grade, and her son stays at home, which is where she has her beauty salon. Alfakelly therefore divides her time between attending to her clients and looking after her children. She wants her salon to have enough clients every day to be sustainable, which will also allow her to help her husband with the household expenses.

Con un préstamo de 26,250 pesos ALfakelly podrá comprar productos para el pelo, tales como shampoo, acondicionador, desrizado y un nuevo secador para su salón de belleza.
Hace 3 años que Alfakelly inició en este negocio y ha sido todo un desafío. Si bien disfruta mucho lo que hace, la competencia es muy fuerte y el sevicio de energía eléctrica, que es muy deficiente en el país, dificulta su trabajo. Sin embargo, como estudiante de mercadeo sabe que un buen servicio al cliente marca la diferencia. Es por esto que quiere adquirir otro secador para el pelo, para que el tiempo de espera de sus clientes sea más corto.

Alfakelly es casada y tiene dos niños de 8 y 3 años. La niña está en 5to grado y el niño se queda en casa, lugar donde opera su salón de belleza. Así Alfakelly divide su tiempo entre atender a sus clientes y cuidar de sus niños.

El deseo de Alfakelly es que su salón de belleza tenga cada día los clientes suficientes para ser sostenible y a la vez ella poder ayudar a su esposo con los gastos del hogar.
