A loan of $275 helped to buy products for the beauty salon.


Yaquel's story

With a loan of 10,600 pesos, Yaquel will be able to buy products for her customers' hair care and nails. Yaquel started her business a year ago on her mother's recommendation after noting how beautifully she did her friends' hair. Yaquel is single, 20 years old, and has still not finished high school. She still lives with her parents, which is customary in her country. With the money made from the beauty salon, Yaquel pays for her studies and contributes towards household expenses. Yaquel's wish is to be able to finish high school and specialize as a professional hair dresser.
