A loan of $375 helped to buy hair dyes and face creams for her beauty salon.


Luz's story

Luz, who is 29 years old, lives in her mother- and father-in-law’s house, along with her husband and their daughter.

Luz has a hairstyling business, doing hair cuts, hair styling, coloring, and other beauty treatments. Her store is located in front of her house, and she rents the space. She always treats her customers in a very friendly manner. She is very happy with her job and she does it well. Part of her success owes to the support her husband gave her when she opened the beauty salon. She used to work as an assistant, working 14 hour days of hard work and gaining experience; now she has her own business. Her greatest wish is to expand her business to include a spa so that she can have more recognition and more clients.

This is her first loan with Microfinzas Prisma, and she promises to make her payments punctually since this money will be very beneficial for equiping her beauty salon. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy liquids, hair dyes, and facial creams so that she can provide better service to her clients.
