A loan of $1,675 helped to buy a shampoo basin for her beauty salon and to buy supplies like dyes, treatments, and more in order to give her customers good service.


Luz Edilma's story

Luz Edilma started her beauty salon some time ago when her husband abandoned her. She was left as a single mother, being the head of the household for her two children. She did not have any financial support, and she felt the obligation to turn to this business as her source of income.

Despite the little capital that she has, her effort has allowed her to get this business ahead. This is because she has long work days, which allows her to generate more sales.

Looking to overcome the difficulty that her business has with capital, Luz Edilma seeks a loan to buy a shampoo basin for her beauty salon. She will also buy supplies like dyes, treatments, and more in order to give her customers good service.

Her dream is to get this business ahead and to give her children a better quality of life than what they are currently able to have.
