A loan of $675 helped to buy hair products and another hairdryer.

Alfakelly's story

With a loan of 26,250 pesos, Alfakelly will be able to buy hair products such as shampoo, conditioner and straightening lotion, as well as a new hairdryer for her beauty salon.

Alfakelly began this business three years ago, and it has been a great challenge. Although she really enjoys what she does, the competition is fierce, and the fact that electricity services are poor in the country also hinders her work. Nevertheless, as a marketing student she knows that good customer service is what makes the difference. This is why she wants to buy another hairdryer, so that her clients do not have to wait as long.

Alfakelly is married, and has two children aged 8 and 3. Her daughter is in the 5th grade, and her son stays at home, which is where she has her beauty salon. Alfakelly therefore divides her time between attending to her clients and looking after her children. She wants her salon to have enough clients every day to be sustainable, which will also allow her to help her husband with the household expenses.
