Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz is 26 years old, and always dreamed of becoming a great stylist. She fought for her dream and today it is a reality. She has been working on what she calls her great passion for seven years. "Having an opportunity to make people happy and boost their self-esteem is my greatest reward when I do my work," says Beatriz with a big smile. She says her big secret to everything going well at work is that she loves what she does. She works daily from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, along with an employee.

Although she is living her dream, this woman doesn't stop dreaming. She currently wants to increase her inventory of products so that she can offer her customers more variety. That is why she is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase beauty products and make improvements in her salon. She expects this investment will increase her sales and she will be able to create more jobs.
