A loan of $1,050 helped to buy hair irons and dryers.


Maria Petita's story

María is 50 years old. She is a hard-working woman who owns a beauty salon where she works every day, from very early in the morning, serving her regular customers. She has many aspirations for her business and so she works from 8.30am to 8.00pm.

Maria works cutting and dying hair, giving manicures and pedicures, etc. Thanks to the beauty courses that she took in her youth, she now owns her own business. She has many aspirations for her business and so would like to work very hard for her business and her family. She would like to use this loan to buy tools for her beauty salon such as hair irons, dryers, etc. In the future, she would like to expand her business and improve her income so that she can provide her family with a better life.
