Makeup is Jennifer’s life, love and passion. To Jennifer, the act of placing makeup on someone’s face is not so much an act, but more of an art.

Serving her hometown of Houston, Texas, 22-year-old Jennifer works for herself, scheduling appointments to beautify as many ladies as possible. After a year of being in business, one of Jennifer’s relatives encouraged her to venture to Accion Texas Inc. for a loan.

Once approved, Jennifer purchased furniture, equipment and supplies to make her facility look more accommodating and inviting to current and future clients. Some of the purchased supplies and equipment help Jennifer expand her customer base by offering additional services.

Jennifer says without the loan, she would not have been able to purchase the necessary office equipment, and therefore, would limit the amount of services offered.
