A loan of $525 helped to buy work materials like nail polish, accessories, molds, nail clippers, files and body creams.


Elizabeth Maria's story

Elizabeth, age 31, has three children; ages 9, 6, and 4. Elizabeth has been doing fingernails and toenails (manicures and pedicures) for three years. She does this to be able to take care of her family and to get her own income.

Elizabeth wants to buy work materials like nail polish, accessories, molds, nail clippers, files and body creams. She wants these items so that she has the work tools in order to meet the demand in the end of the year season. She also wants to improve her family’s quality of life.

In the future Elizabeth wishes to have her own place.
