A loan helped to increase working capital and to buy creams, keratins, hair dyes, etc.


Ana Cristina's story

Ana is an entrepreneurial woman and is 40 years old. She is a resident of the city of Cartagena de Indias where she lives with her daughters.

She owns a beauty salon business. Ana Cristina started this business approximately five years ago. She started this work out of the desire to improve her and her family's quality of life and to support her daughters. She currently offers her products daily to her neighbors, relatives, and people nearby through both cash or credit payments.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, she had to suspend her work due to safety and health issues. Her income decreased drastically and she has been greatly affected economically. She is currently managing her first loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation. This loan will be used to increase her working capital and to buy creams, keratins, hair dyes, etc., to reach a greater number of clients and increase sales. Support her with this business loan.
