San Francisco Group's story

San Francisco is a very hardworking group, demonstrated by the fact that this is their 14th loan cycle. All the members are very happy to be part of this challenge. They are doing the eliminate poverty survey and it shows that they need to continue working.

Limpia is one of the women in the group. She has a modest hairdressing business. She works there every day and serves her customers well. She says that she started small, but over time she gained ground and now she has a strong customer base who use her service regularly and are very loyal to her salon.

Limpia’s goal is to continue working, as she has done until now. For this reason she is requesting this loan, in order to invest in the purchase of shampoo, rinses, sprays, dyes and other supplies. This will enable her to keep providing her customers with a good service.

The loan will also help her to invest more in her work so that she can improve her income and keep helping her family.
