A loan of $450 helped to buy professional equipment and beauty products.


Timotea's story

Timotea has operated her beauty salon for more than eleven years already.

She is requesting a loan so that she can buy more modern equipment (chairs and mirrors), as well as beauty products such as makeup, eyeshadows in different colors, lipsticks, hair treatments and hair dyes. She will also have these products for sale, since her customers are asking for them.

Timotea is a single mother with three children in her care. Two of them are studying in secondary school, and the youngest is in primary school. She wants her children to have the education they need to get ahead in their future lives.

She will pay off the loan with part of the earnings she obtains from her business, since this is the source of income she has for her family. She would like to improve her business to provide better service to her customers, and thus they will recommend her salon to other people.
