Leidy Johana's story

Leidy is a young, 20 year old entrepreneur. Five years ago, she started to work in order to generate income for her home and in order to collaborate with her parents on the family’s expenses since they were going through great economic difficulties. This is how she started to work as an employee doing nails and little by little, she acquired more experience. Wanting to become independent and create her own business, two years ago Leidy took some of her savings and started her own beauty salon. The salon offers nail services, haircuts and other services. Thanks to her now having her own business and being able to contribute economically, her household has the possibility to generate income that will allow them to move forward. Looking to overcome the capital difficult and move this project forward, Leidy is seeking a loan to purchase furniture and showcases to display her products and increase the beauty product sales that are sold in her business. Her dream is to be able to move her business forward by offering good service to her customers and by doing this, she can increase her sales. In addition, she can create jobs for people who need them most and can contribute to improving the lives of others.
