Gloria Elena's story

Gloria is the head of her household and a single mother to 2 children. To generate the income required for the home, she has a beauty salon where she offers her clients hair cuts and hair brushing. For 30 years she has experience working in this activity. For the last 10 years she has had her own business so that she can improve her income and the economic part of her home. Thanks to this business she has been able to get ahead her two children and improve the quality of life in her home. For this reason she always works hard to continue to improve everyday.

To be able to confront the end of the season when her clients increase considerably, Gloria is looking for a loan to purchase new chairs and realize other benefits that she needs in order to offer a better service.

Her dream is to have a spa where she can generate employments for the people in need and with this business help improve the quality of life for her children.
