Rosario Elizabeth
Rosario Elizabeth is a 26 year-old entrepreneur from Monterrey, Mexico. Born in the city of Monterrey, she is the youngest of three children born of the marriage between Maria del Rosario (her mother) and Juan (her father).

With much encouragement and support from her parents, she completed her primary studies at the school in her neighbourhood. She completed high school at the Polytechnic # 60. During high school she became interested in becoming a great stylist and she decided to enrol in the Rivera Institute of Beauty located in the city centre. There she trained for two years in order to complete her studies. Later she offered her services at Estetika Stilo (a chain of beauty salons) where she worked for nearly a year.

Her aunt Esperanza, with whom she is very close, encouraged her to start her own business at home. Beginning with very little furniture - a chair, a small mirror, and a pair of scissors - she began to offer haircuts in her neighbourhood.

At the moment, she has a large clientele, which is why she has decided to request a loan to acquire more furniture. This will enable her to offer better service, to increase profits and to continue growing as a small business, as well as to continue helping her parents. Her dream is to have her own premises and to establish several branches.

Rosario Elizabeth es una joven emprendedora regiomontana de 26 años, nacida en la ciudad de Monterrey, Méx.; es la mas chica de 3 hermanos del matrimonio formado por doña Maria del Rosario (mamá) y el Sr. Juan (papá). Con mucho esfuerzo de sus padres, realizó sus estudios primarios en la escuela de la misma colonia donde vive y sus estudios técnicos los hizo en la Secundaria Tecnica # 60. En esa etapa le nació el interes de ser una gran Estilista, por lo que decició ingresar en el Instituto de Belleza Rivera en el centro de esta ciudad, preparándose durante 2 años para culminar sus estudios. Posteriormente prestó sus servicios en la Estetika Stilo (cadena de estéticas) en donde estuvo cerca de una año.

Una tia muy cercana a ella, la Tia Esperanza, la animó a poner su propio negocio en su domicilio, iniciando con muy poco mobiliario, una silla, un espejo pequeño y un juego de tijeras y empezó a dar el servicio de corte de cabello en su colonia. Actualmente cuenta con una gran clientela, por lo que decidió solicitar un crédito para adquirir más mobiliario para dar un mayor servicio e incrementar sus ganancias y seguir creciendo como microempresaria, ademas de seguir ayudando a sus padres. Su mayor ilusión es tener sus propios locales y establecer varias sucursales.
