A loan of $625 helped to purchase hair and beauty products.


Mireille's story

Two years ago, Mireille opened a hair salon in front of her property. She works full time, unless there is housework to be done. She is married with three young children. She does her clients’ hair, makeup, braids and beauty treatments.

A previous loan was very helpful as it allowed her to improve her salon and offer a variety of products commonly used by women for hair care. She was also selling hair extensions and weaves, which helped with the weekly loan payments to Hope.

With the next loan, she plans to strengthen her business, improve her conditions and offer promotions. During the holiday periods of Tabaski, Ramadan, Christmas and other celebrations, she earns over 60,000 F per day.

She also plans to open a beauty school to benefit her children.
