A loan of $400 helped to purchase hair dye and beauty accessories.

Betzil's story

Betzil is 24 years old and engaged to 34-year-old Efrain. She has a great source of motivation, which is her little one-year-old Ariana. She lives with her small family in a rented house built with noble materials. She used to help her mother sell food at a local fair. Years later, when her relationship with Efrain became official, thanks to some savings they successfully opened a beauty salon in a rented space located within the central area of her town. Thanks to the skills she learned from an accelerated hairdressing class, she's able to use her business to solidly contribute to her family's finances. She reports that she enjoys her work very much, because during this time of the year the influx of customers is very good. For that reason she wishes to have enough capital to purchase beauty supplies and provide hair dyeing as well as other services that are requested by her customers.
Her long-term goal is to earn enough money to purchase a plot of land. Then later on she'll start building her house and establish her business in a similar way.
This is her first loan. She's very glad to get this opportunity and hopes to comply with her repayments in a responsible fashion. For that reason she wishes to receive 1000 nuevos soles in order to purchase hair dye and beauty accessories such as hair clips, ponytail holders and brooches made of costume jewelry.
