A loan of $550 helped to buy products for her beauty salon.


Maria Enma's story

María, 31 years old, lives with her husband and a daughter, Mariana.

She works in her own beauty salon where she styles hair, cuts hair, does facials, dyes hair, does manicures, and other services. She also has a cybercafe where she rents computers so people can connect to the Internet and youngsters can do their homework. Her daughter helps her in the business. The beauty salon and the cybercafe are located in her home which is a plus because of advantages such as not having to pay rent.

María is asking for a loan through Integral so she can invest in the purchase of a computer in order to improve the service of the cybercafe and at the same time invest in the purchase of beauty products such as hair dyes, shampoo, creams, conditioners and more so she can improve the beauty salon and thus be able to serve more clients.
