A loan of $550 helped to buy beauty products.


Mavisley's story

Mavisley is 28 years old. She is a fighter who thinks big. She understands that her children need her in order to get ahead and therefore she earns a living doing what she learnt when she was young. Tired of putting up with humiliating comments from her work colleagues over the colour of her skin, she decided to leave the beauty salon where she was working and set up her own in her living room where she can dedicate more time to her children, aged 6 and 2 years old.

Mavisley needs a loan to buy products for her salon due to the lack of her own resources. Her biggest dream is that her beauty salon is recognised and that the number of clients increases so that her income also increases and she can give her little ones everything that she wasn't able to have.
