Aracelis's story

Aracelis wants to use 29,400 DOP to buy more products in order to give her customers good service. In addition to that she wants to finish building and decorating her beauty salon.

Aracelis is married, and her husband is a barber. They have a three month old baby.

Aracelis’s wish is to continually improve her hairdressing techniques in order to be able to tend to a greater variety of customers. She wants to diversify her business by setting up a clothing store for the customers who come to her beauty salon.
