Marelis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to set up a space in her home to start a business and buy paints, building materials and more.
Marelis is 47 years old and has spent a large part of her life working in order to support her household. Marelis has a young son for whom she does whatever she can to look after his well-being. Marelis owns a small beauty parlour in the living room of her own home. There she offers different services such as haircuts, nail treatments and more. This is small business but Marelis is passionate about it. With a lot of dedication she did training to start her own business. Things have not been easy for Marelis and she has had to put up with a lot of things in her life. She has done many low-paying and difficult jobs. Today Marelis is completely dedicated to her work, and wants to offer better service to her customers. To do this, she wants to set up a space in her house for her customers. For this work, she needs to buy a few items such as paint, building materials and more. This work will allow Marelis to serve her customers better, and in a more comfortable and more hygienic space- Marelis' dream is to have a large beauty parlour where she can generate jobs for others.
