Ana Lilian's story

Ana is 28 years old. She lives with her common-law husband.

She has had 8 years of experience in running her own business, a beauty salon. She comments that she learned this trade because she could not continue going to school and decided to take a course in cosmetology. With the help of her husband, she set up her beauty shop. Before, Ana only carried out household duties in her home.

To buy the materials that she needs in her business, she travels by bus to a city in the eastern part of the country. The trip takes an hour, since it is about 35 kilometers from her house to the city. She goes there to make her purchases because they give her better prices there. Ana leaves very early to make her purchases so that she can come back and tend to her business, since she has many customers.

Ana is applying to Fudación Campo for a loan to buy dyes, bleaches, pliers, crochet hooks, gloves, spray creams, and scissors, among other items, and also to pay back another loan from the foundation. With the investment, she will have a greater quantity of products at her disposal, so that she tend to her customers and offer them better service, obtaining a greater income for her and her family, since she will help her husband with the household expenses.

Ana plans to have a better and more well-stocked shop and to hire a person to help her give better service, since at this time she works alone in the shop.
