A loan of $850 helped buy dyes, creams, shampoo, combs, conditioners and disposable razors.


Claudia Mariela's story

Claudia is a married mother of three children, who is orginally from León. She runs a beauty salon. Previously, she was an ambulant clothing vendor, but her son got sick and she needed to spend more time at home. She studied cosmetology so she decided to put her studies in practice and started her small beauty salon. She opens it every day and her clientele includes mostly ladies and youngsters. She’s requesting this loan to buy dyes, creams, shampoo, combs, conditioners and disposable razors. Her idea is to modernize her salon, offer quality in the products she uses and learn new hair styles so her clients feel comfortable in her salon. Another project she’d like to realize is to open a grocery store.
