Ángela María's story

"To improve oneself, one only needs the desire to do so and discipline: fundamental pillars for success."

With this phrase, Ángela, 39 years old, demonstrates how she followed her dreams and became a professional stylist. She worked for several years as a housekeeper while, at the same time, studying in a beauty academy in her city. After she finished her studies, she worked for a little while longer until she had saved enough money to open her own business. Now, Ángela is very well-known in her area for the excellent work she does. Her quality of life has considerably improved and one of her children was admitted to a university.

Ángela's biggest dream is for her business to keep growing. She is requesting this loan in order to buy shelves and beauty products to sell in her beauty salon.
