Dulce Maria's story

Dulce Maria M. A. is a 35 year old single mother with two children. They live together in the Las Flores neighborhood of the city of Juticalpa.

Dulce has a small beauty salon that she runs Monday through Saturday, from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. She is also available on Sundays, whenever her customers need her, and also makes house calls when they are unable to go to her salon.

[She] is very well known in her neighborhood and comes with very good references from her customers and neighbors. She is asking for this loan in order to buy a large variety of hair coloring, hair treatments, shampoos, conditioners, lipsticks, nail polish, and deodorants, so that her customers will always be able to find what they need to be beautiful.

She is a woman who puts a great emphasis on doing her job well, so that her customer base will grow, or at the very least remain stable. This loan will be of great benefit to her because the income that it will produce will allow her to continue supporting her children who depend completely on her.

She hopes to have her own home someday and also that her children will have professional careers. [Dulce] has been a client of FAMA for a number of cycles and has had a good repayment record.
