Rosa Gladys's story

Rosa is 57 years old, divorced, and has a 19-year-old daughter who lives with her and attends university.

Rosa has always enjoyed working and came up with the great idea that she should learn to cut hair. Being a divorced woman, she has had to work hard to support herself and pay all of her expenses and those of her daughter.

With the earnings from her beauty salon, Rosa has been able to set aside money for her small business. She works alone at her business from 9 A.M. to 7 P.M., Monday through Saturday. With this loan Rosa will buy scissors, curling irons, dyes, and other supplies. She dreams of seeing her business and income grow. Rosa also wants to expand her business so that she can have more customers.
