Fernando Salvador R. is 18 years old and in his first year of university, earning a degree in hotel administration and hospitality. Karen Vanesa is 16 years old and in her third year of high school. Stacy Janeth Lopez R. is 13 years old and in her first year of high school.

Janeth would like to finish her beauty school so that she can educate children from low-income families. The business that Janeth now manages is located on Rigoberto Lopez Perez, Radio Morena 1 1/2c. and offers technical classes in cosmetology and hair styling. Janneth has 15 years of experience as a stylist and 4 years as an instructor. She started this business because there were no beauty academies in her area and the organizations that did offer beauty instruction were not accredited. Janneth would like to use a loan to improve her establishment and pay more attention to her clients. Janneth says that all of her loans have benefited her, including helping her sell products like straighteners, dyes, perms, and manicures.
