A loan helped to buy new equipment for her hair salon.


Germaine Nadia's story

Germaine is a 34-year-old woman, married, and mother of two children. She received training that allowed her to open a hair salon, which she has been running herself for eight years.

Her business is running well, but she does not have enough equipment. Because of this, she is requesting a loan to allow her to purchase more equipment to satisfy her customers and also to increase profitability.

The profits will allow her to to save, to modernize her salon, and to improve her family's living conditions.
