A loan of $850 helped to buy a sink and supplies.

María Nubia's story

María, 46, is a woman noted for her responsibility and kind way of treating customers. She’s been a stylist for ten years, an activity she learned empirically and perfected thanks to the opportunity she had of entering a beauty academy.

She works every day from nine in the morning until eight at night with one of her daughters; they are her greatest reason for moving forward. She wants to provide them with higher education which is why she strives to generate the largest possible number of customers and earn higher income.

She’s currently asking for a loan to buy a hair-washing sink and supplies in general to provide better quality of service. Her greatest challenge is the high level of competition in her town which is why she feels that her competitive edge is good service.
