Paula Andrea's story

Without a lot of capital, Paula started her beauty salon and cosmetology service business, with which she has been generating the necessary income to support herself and her child. Paula opened her business offering only cutting and brushing hair, but she began to study cosmetology and later managed to acquire massage equipment, and so she expanded the services she offered to her customers. Thanks to this she has been able to attract a large number of customers and her business is very well known for her good customer service.

With this business, Paula has given her two-year-old son a good quality of life despite the fact that his father had abandoned them a long time ago. This is why Paula wants to continue increasing her sales and offering a better quality of life in her home.

For the purchase of new massage equipment, Paula is looking that a loan gives her the possibility to buy an ultracavitation machine with which she can give better massage service to her customers.

Paula hopes that in this way her clientele will increase considerably because she will be able to offer complete service with which her customers will be more satisfied and will refer her business.

In addition, Paula hopes that, with the greater income, she can offer her son a better quality of life and better economic opportunities for his progress. Paula dreams about having a big beauty center, located in her own place and where she can offer more employment for the neediest people.
