A loan of $800 helped to invest in advance rent payments.


Marivel Mirian's story

Marivel has been a hairdresser for some time, and has a shop in the Villa Fátima region. She does well there because she has many customers who appreciate her quality service. Before, she was just an employee, but now with her experience she has decided to open her own beauty salon. Her husband is a radio engineer, and his business is not stable because sometimes he has a contract, and sometimes he does not. Marivel has studied to be a hairdresser since she was very young, and, luckily, she is doing what she likes most, hair styling. Her sons are studying in first grade. The loan will be invested in advance rent payments for her beauty salon. Marivel is a dynamic person with desires to get ahead. Her wish is to improve her and her family’s quality of life.
