A loan of $800 helped purchase nail polishes & machines.


Cecilia Matilde's story

Cecilia is 44 years old and operates a beauty parlor in the front part of her house. She is separated from her spouse and has four children. They live in Suburbio de Guayaquil.


Cecilia started her business by cutting hair and painting nails. With her savings, she was able to create her own shop and purchase equipment for her beauty salon. Little by little and with the help of her adult children, she was able to remodel her house so that she could place her beauty salon there. Now she works every day from 9am until 11pm.


In order to expand her business, Cecilia needs a loan to buy nail polishes and machines. In the future, she wants to grow her family and build a better home.
