A loan of $525 helped to buy tools and equipment for her beauty salon.


Leonides's story

Leonides is requesting a loan in order to buy tools and equipment she needs for her beauty salon.

She needs tools such as special scissors for cutting hair, machines, combs, a hair dryer, and a hair flattening iron, and also equipment such as special chairs and mirrors. She does not have the money necessary to outfit her salon.

Leonides has been doing beauty work in people’s homes and helping her friends with their work. But now she wants to open her own business in her home so that she can take care of her young son. He is her responsibility because she is a single mother.

With part of the income she will earn from her beauty salon, she will make her re-payments.
