A loan of $1,700 helped to buy beauty salon supplies.

Miryam Amparo's story

Miryam’s a single mother head of household. When she had her first child she realized the need to start working and this is how she started working in beauty shops. She liked it very much. Once she had acquired knowledge and experience, she opened her own beauty shop.

Miryam has overcome life’s adversities with much strength because being a single mother of two children and having to provide them with a good quality education and cover household expenses has caused her to strive hard every day at work in order to get ahead. Miryam wants to continue growing in her business and would like to buy barbering supplies so that her younger son can start working alongside her since he’s been studying the profession for some time now. Because she does not have sufficient capital to do so, Miryam is looking for a loan to buy the necessary tools to provide barbering services in her beauty salon.

Her dream is to be able to move forward and overcome the tough challenges life has presented her with. In addition, she hopes in the future to be able to buy her own house thus being able to provide her children with a more stable home.
