A loan of $1,275 helped to buy a ceiling to install over part of the beauty salon, a wooden door, and a cable for electricity.

Silvia Filomena's story

Silvia continues to offer beauty services, a trade she learned in her youth. Over the years she has expanded its inventory and has added the sale of new clothing and cosmetics. She also improved her housing. All this improvement has been achieved with money her children have sent as remittance, her earnings, and financing from Afodenic, which has been done in a short period. She has two people working in her beauty salon. Now she lives with just one married son.

Today with this new loan, she will change a wooden door and install a ceiling and electricity in the part where her beauty salon is in for a better atmosphere and improved hygiene. Silvia is pleased to be able to make this improvement which will give her better benefits to attract new customers upon being remodelled.
