Cecilia's story

With a loan for 26,250 pesos Cecila has been able to buy hair care products like shampoo, conditioner, dyes, straighteners, and a new hair dryer for her beauty salon. This is the fourth loan that Cecilia has had with our organization, and she has always been a good client, making her payments on time.

Cecilia is the single mother of a 12 year old son. Knowing how hard it is to raise a son alone, she decided that she always wanted to be there for her son. She would not manage to do that if she looked for an eight hour job. Therefore, she decided to start her own business. Because styling her hair and that of her neighbors always turned out well for her, she decided to study to be a hairdresser.

With her beauty salon Cecilia maintains her household . She supports her son, and she makes sure that he goes to school and becomes an well-mannered young man.

Cecilia’s hope for the near future is to save to buy a car.
