Mercedes Yolanda's story

Mercedes Yolanda and her family live in Jipijapa, a place greatly affected by the health emergency brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. She is a driven woman who struggles every day to earn her own income in order to get ahead in life. For this reason, she has had a retail space for 33 years which she tends every day for 12 hours. There, she dyes, cuts, perms, and brushes hair, as well as provides other services. Because of the pandemic, she had to close her shop and is thinking about reopening it with all the necessary health measures.

This loan will be used to buy perm chemicals, scissors, and shampoo. Her dream is to keep working at what she likes to do and getting ahead in life.
