A loan of $275 helped to buy shampoo, conditioner, hair-care products, and women's underwear for her customers.


Yiskeila's story

With a loan of 10,600 pesos, Yiskella will be able to buy shampoo, conditioner, hair-care products, and women's underwear for her customers. She decided to begin this business when her son was born, and he is now 5 years old. She is a single mother, and knowing that she would not have support to raise her son, she decided to open her own beauty salon, since she had worked up until then as an employee.

Her son is in kindergarten, and in the afternoons she has the opportunity to be with him and help him with his homework, since the beauty salon operates from her house. Yiskella wants to save to buy a plot of land where she will begin, little by little, the construction of her own house.
