She lives in the town of Soledad, in Atlántico department, with her 4-year-old son. She is a single mother.

In 2003, that is to say 10 years ago, Juliett learned the art of buying a range of products (clothing, footwear and perfume) and selling them to family members, friends, neighbors and people she has been recommended to. She makes her sales on credit and for cash. She learned the hairdressing, beauty, manicure and pedicure trade two years ago and provides these services both in her own home and in other people's. She works eight hours a day in her commercial and service-sector businesses. She buys the products that she sells and the supplies that she uses in her beauty business, both on credit and for cash, from wholesalers.

This is Juliett's first loan from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and she will use it to buy beauty treatments, clothing, footwear, cologne, perfume, creams and cosmetics so that she can fill her customers' orders and offer them a better service. This will help her to increase her income and profits. One of Juliett's goals for investing her future loans is to continue strengthening her beauty business by purchasing equipment and tools.
