Paula Andrea's story

“Life is full of challenges and dreams to achieve.” With this sentence, 29 year old Paula Andrea tells us how she began her career as a manicurist. Since she was a little girl, she always knew that beauty was her strong point because all of her schoolmates sought her out for hairstyles. This is how she began learning and then perfected the skill in a trade school. Later she began working out of her home. Her greatest passion is her work. She loves what she does and she enjoys it 100%. She wants to start her own salon but doesn’t have the necessary resources to do it, so she is requesting a loan to buy a display case and inventory to take the first steps in her grand project. Paula is hoping that this investment will generate the necessary income to provide her children with a better quality of life.
