Ruth Johana's story

Ruth, 24, is married and has two children and lives in the city of San Pedro Sula. From a very young age Ruth has liked beauty activities. She acquired a locale 8 years ago where she offers barber services; haircuts in general and the sale of cosmetics.

She’s been an ODEF client for three loan cycles including the present one. She will use it to buy tools like brushes, combs and scissors and also to buy cosmetics, shampoo, creams and hair color to sell. This investment will help her have products on hand to sell and meet customer demand. Her goal is to develop the business further in order to earn income for her family’s daily sustenance and to feel fulfilled in her dream.
