A loan of $800 helped to buy items for her beauty salon.


Rina's story

Rina is 39 years old and a single mother to her 14 year old daughter. She is currently living at her mother's house. Rina's work is hairdressing and beauty therapy. She serves various customers who are in need of beauty treatments, such as a hair cut, hair dying, highlights, make-up and other services. In addition she sells beauty products for women, such as nail varnish, lipstick, perfume and other items. She has friends and other people who come to her business on recommendation. Rina always provides friendly and polite service and these qualities have always helped her to have good customers. She started this work a year ago and, for now, she works alone. She thinks her business is quite profitable as she makes a good lving. For this reason she feels prosperous and independent. She hopes to continue with her business and, little by little, to have a space in her home so she can tend to her customers more comfortably. On this occasion she is applying for a loan of 2000 Nuevo Soles that will help her to buy beauty products such as hair dye, creams, combs, hairpins and other items. She promises to be punctual with her repayments.
