Yolanda's story

Yolanda lives in the city of Duran in Guayas Province. She divorced her spouse ten years ago but has two adult children from that relationship; they live independently now. She started out with the dream of becoming a professional hair stylist because her mother taught her everything related to hair styling when she was very young. She currently works with one of her son’s help. She and he work Monday through Friday from 8 in the morning until 9 at night. She will use the loan to buy hair color, a hair clipper, a hair straightening comb and other tools. Her goal is to enlarge the business to provide better customer service.
