Silvia Yaroslav
Silvia Yaroslav E. M. is client of Fundación León 2000. She is a 34-year-old woman with two dependent children. She learned this trade—providing beauty salon services—from her grandmother. She has been in business for 7 years. Besides running the beauty salon, she has to take care of her children. She opens the salon very early in the morning to attend to each and every one of her customers. The business is located on the outskirts of a bustling market, which gives her the opportunity to gain new clients. The loan that she is requesting with will be used as working capital to purchase styling chairs, scissors, hair treatments, hair dyes, and blow-dryers. Silvia’s dream is to open up her own beauty school so that she can pass on her skills.
