A loan helped a member to purchase hair dyes, creams, shampoos, rinses, hair treatments, and more products.


Don Bosco Group's story

The desire for self-improvement has helped form this group, through which all of the members want to improve their quality of life. They are doing their best to overcome their situation of poverty so that they do not lack for anything in life.

Among them, it is worth mentioning Norma, who has a hair salon and says that her business began modestly and it has improved thanks to her constant efforts and sacrifice. Norma Carolina is a determined person that has sacrificed for her family, especially to support her two children and to help her husband with the household income.

She is requesting this loan to purchase materials for her hair salon, such as hair dyes, creams, shampoos, rinses, hair treatments, and more products.
