Medarda Elizabeth's story

Medarda Elizabeth R. R. lives in the town of Colon, located in the district of La Libertad. She is 25 years old and lives with her husband and young daughter Andrea, who is 3 years old. Her husband William is employed and earns $200 USD each month for their family.


For seven years, Medarda has been operating a beauty salon that is growing and gaining popularity in the area. She now needs to restock her salon with hair products so that she can generate more income for her family. Since her sales and the demand for her merchandise have been increasing, Medarda decided to apply for a loan so that she can buy a variety of new products to sell at her business.
