A loan of $850 helped to purchase beauty products and a hair washing station.


Martha Isabel's story

Martha is 52 years old and she lives in the suburban region of Paraiso, known for its unpaved roads and mountains. She has remodelled a section of her house to be a beauty shop.

She once worked in a day care and with those earnings she went to beauty school. Slowly she saved enough money and gained some practice to purchase some beauty products and appliances, such as curling irons and hair dryers. She launched her business and set up her own beauty salon.

She requests a loan to purchase beauty products and a hair washing station. In the future she hopes to finish her beauty school training and build a better house.
