A loan of $650 helped salon chair, shampoo, gel.


Calixta Eduvis's story

Calixta Cedeño is 33 years old, and lives with her parents in the semi-urban area, Paraíso (Guayaquil), where they have basic services. Calixta used to work in a hair salon, but decided to leave, using what she had learned to set up her own beauty salon. She now works in her salon every day from 8 in the morning to 11 in the evening, with hair cuts, hair treatments, coloring, etc. One of the complications in that line of business is delinquent payment. She would use the loan to buy a hairdresser’s chair, shampoo, and hair-treatment products for her business. She would like to have employees for her business in the future.
