Sonnia Marlene's story

Sonnia is 40 years old. She is from Playas, where she has a unisex beauty salon. She tells us that she has always liked doing hair so when she could she took classes to learn how. Eleven years ago she opened the salon which she manages with her daughter, who is following in her footsteps. She works at the salon only in the afternoon because in the morning she teaches beauty school classes at the city college. The business is open from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday. Her husband is a master builder and her children attend school. This loan will be used to purchase dyes and nail polish. Her goal is to expand her business and to purchase equipment to do skin exfoliation.
