A loan helped to buy nail polish, acrylic nails, and certain tools she needs to provide manicures.


Johanna Guadalupe's story

Johanna Guadalupe is 35 years old, married, and has no children. Her husband is a mason. They live in Santa Ana, a place with beautiful countryside landscapes and freshwater resorts that receive many visitors. However, due to the pandemic, they are still empty, causing great financial losses.

Johanna is a very hardworking woman who does what is necessary to make her own income in order to help her husband move forward, more so now that things are increasingly difficult because of the pandemic. She is a stylist, and works styling hair and doing acrylic nails. She works from her home or makes house calls, whatever her clients prefer.

The quarantine has been very difficult for Johanna as her work decreased, and she had no way to make a living. Things are improving now, and she hopes for better days. This loan is to buy nail polish, acrylic nails, and certain tools she needs.
