Elsy Elizabeth's story

Elsy is 25 years old and lives in the northern part of the city of Guayaquil. She is divorced and has a 7-year-old son who attends a nearby public school. Since she was young, Elsy has dreamed of opening her own beauty salon. After eight years of planning, she was able to open her business that she now runs out of her home. Currently, Elsy works in the salon Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. As time has passed, her client-base has grown, which has helped her improve her salon little by little. With this loan, Elsy will buy dyes, hair-clippers, creams, and other items for her business. Her goal is to expand her beauty salon in order to satisfy her customers and, in this way, improve the quality of life of her son.
