Ms. G. is 30 years old and not married. She is a hairdresser and her salon is located in the Kennedy neighborhood of the city of Caacupé. She has been working as a hairdresser for more than 12 years, and now she has a permanent clientele, made up especially of the area’s civil servants, who always come to her salon to request manicures, pedicures, hair coloring, and hair cuts.
She says that her greatest achievement was to have located her salon in an area with many people and to equip it with the necessary equipment to provide the services that are in the highest demand. This enabled her to grow her clientele and make herself well-known in the neighborhood.
Ms. G. has a related project to augment her business with the purchase of display cabinets where she would be able to sell jewelry and beauty products, among other things.
With the loans she receives from Fundación Paraguaya she can buy furniture and some accessories for her hair salon.
