Monica Piedad's story

Mónica is a person who is known for being calm, cheerful, and a hard worker. She has tremendous drive to succeed. Mónica is single and lives with her son in the city of Ibarra (La Esperanza), which is located in Imbabura Province.

Mónica invests great effort into her work since she is the only one providing for the household expenses and the education of her son. For this reason, she needs to invest in her business so that she can grow her clientele and generate more income. In the future, this will help to improve her son's quality of life.

The loan she is requesting from FODEMI will be invested in the purchase of combs, brushes, hair dryers, hair dyes, nail polishes, and a few furniture pieces that she lacks in order to provide good service to her customers. Mónica dreams of having a larger salon and assistants who can provide service to more people. As a result, she will be able to help her son move forward.
