Luisa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy and sell beauty products.

Luisa's story

Luisa is a 34-year-old lady who is a hairdresser. She is married and the mother of five children: two attending primary school, two in secondary school, and one who is not yet school age. She lives in her own home and does not perform any role in the community.

With this loan, she would like to buy hair extensions, vitamins, and other salon products to meet the needs of her customers. This is the third time she is borrowing; with the previous loans, she bought construction materials to build her salon.

Luísa dreams of growing her business and of becoming a successful entrepreneur.
