Leidy Yurani's story
Leidy is a woman who is committed to her family and her job. Her persistence and perseverance have allowed her to get ahead in life, overcoming several obstacles that she has met along the way. She has had her own business for five years, which is a beauty salon that she runs from home. She also offers a mobile service, depending on what her customers need. This job has helped her generate enough money to be able to support her husband by contributing to the household expenses and to take care of their only son. She is requesting the loan to invest in the purchase of supplies at wholesale (capillary treatments, shampoo, conditioner, nail polish, and so on). This will allow her to continue working and giving a better service to her customers by being quicker and more efficient, which, in turn, will have a positive effect on profits. Leidy says that her greatest wish is to be able to strengthen her business and become more competitive in the market, so that she can give her family a better quality of life.
