Fatima De Jesus's story

Fatima, 27 years old, lives in Primavera de Duran (the outskirts of a city that was originally more natural, with many hills, streams, and lakes that still exist as remnants of a dissolving ecology). She is single and has a five-year-old son who goes to private school. She has a beauty salon.

Some time ago, she started this business because she studied beauty and before that had worked in an office. She works from 9 am to 7 pm. With the help of this loan, she will purchase construction materials in order to improve her space so she can grow her business.
