Emilse Isabel's story

Emilse is a woman who has the responsibility of being both mother and father to her 14-year-old twins. Ten years ago, she separated from her husband and had to provide for her family alone. "It has not been easy, but my children fill me with the motivation to fight every day and to be able to offer them the best." With these words, Emilse tells us about the life she has lived since she has no financial support from her spouse. Despite the difficult times she has been through, she managed to overcome her situation by drawing on her innate potential for hairdressing and everything related to the field of beauty. Her mother lent her the money to start her business in order to generate income and maintain her home. Today, her hair salon has allowed her to improve her quality of life and provide her children with food, clothing, and an education. Although she acknowledges that her life has improved considerably, she hopes to become a great entrepreneur. Therefore, she is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of a chair for haircuts and beauty products, in order to expand her product portfolio and improve her services.
