Maya's story

Maya has a beauty and treatment salon in an excellent neighborhood of her ‎city. She has a good selection of permanent clients and gains new customers ‎through walk-ins. The quality of her treatments is high and she provides a ‎variety of much used services including laser hair removal, manicures, ‎pedicures, facials and permanent makeup treatments.‎

Maya needed this loan to assist with paying for renovations, adding treatment rooms, manicure and nail building supplies, materials, and pieces for ‎her laser treatment machine.‎

Maya's business is growing as she planned. She wants to ensure her ‎daughters gain a strong education when they grow up and the savings she is ‎and will put aside will help assure this.‎
