A loan helped me remodel my salon, improve the window display and invest in three new hair stations.
I was born in Mexico City, I moved to Oakland when I was six years old. I grew up in the neighborhood around Fruitvale and had a nice childhood with a good community of people. I was always artistic, and I see myself as a positive and creative person. I sold flowers in high school to raise money for my club, La Raza Student Union at Fremont High School in Oakland. After high school I went to beauty school and became a hair stylist.
