Raquel's story

Miss Raquel Fernandez is a very jovial and happy person, with great entrepreneurial spirit. She is 28 years old and lives in her parents' house in the city of Ñemby. One of her virtues is that she is stylish, and likes to take care of all that relates to beauty care.

For that reason she decided to start a spa and beauty salon, offering also reduction massages, with an annex for clothing and jewelry. At first she was only able to open the salon, as the place where her micro-enterprise is located had limited space.

This forced her to seek for larger premises and this way she was able to realize her dream of owning a spa. She now feels fulfilled, particularly as she achieved her goal in such a short period.

She mentions that attaining those goals would not have been possible without the help of what she considers the most important, that is obtaining a loan as a source of operating capital. She is requesting this loan to buy a hair dryer, shampoo basins, a set of tuffets, and hairdressing articles and tools.
