A loan of $550 helped to buy a hair dryer and a hair straightener.

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 26, single and lives with her mother, Eudelina, and two younger sisters in Coronel Oviedo. Elizabeth is a young entrepreneur who started working at a very young age with her mother in a small cafeteria they have nearby. Since she is the oldest sister, she had to help with the upkeep of the house along with her mother, who is single. With a lot of effort, she studied hairdressing and manicure and received the best grades. She performs her services in-home, offering her customers comfort and professionalism at a good price. She reports that it is going well with her established clientele because they are all very busy people who don't have time to wait for hours in beauty salons.

She is requesting a loan, which she wants to invest in buying a professional hair dryer and a hair straightener, which will help her a lot in her work. She very much appreciates the assistance that she is receiving, since it will be a great help.
