Mary Luz's story

Mary is 28 years old and is in a common law marriage. Her tenacity and perseverance have allowed her to get ahead, overcoming various obstacles that have presented themselves where she lives in Medellin.

Twelve years ago she started a beauty salon in her residence. She also offers in-home services, depending on her clients' needs.

The loan she is asking for is to invest in a hair dryer, a hair straightening iron, hair dyes, and shampoo, etc. This will let her continue with her work and continue offering the most complete care to her clients in a more efficient and skillful way.
