Luz Elena's story

Luz Elena is married and has six children for whom she always tries to provide a good quality of life. About 25 years ago, she studied at a beauty school and learned how to cut and style hair. Since then, she has worked hard to generate income in order to contribute financially to the household expenses. Luz Elena previously had a beauty salon at a location where she generated many sales. However, she was eager to take care of her young children, so she moved the beauty salon into her house. She was able to maintain an established clientele for her business. By having the beauty salon in her house, Luz Elena was able to look after her children and provide them with a good quality of life. She wants her children to have constant support at home, so she is willing to keep her business at home so that she can continue looking after them.

Luz Elena is looking forward to replacing some of her work equipment, so she is seeking a loan as an opportunity to purchase a hair dryer and a professional curling iron. By replacing her equipment, she will be able to provide good service to the customers who visit her beauty salon. By continuing to have a good number of customers and providing them good service, Luz Elena's earnings will continue to increase. She also hopes that her children and her husband will continue experiencing a good quality of life and better financial opportunities to make progress.
