A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a display case and some hairdressing products.


Andrea's story

31-year-old Andrea is a hard-working woman who both works and cares for her 9-year-old son as she is a single mother. She worked for more than 12 years as a demo lady in different chain stores but, one year ago, she decided to become a micro businesswoman and set up her own business selling hairdressing products. She says that her work is not easy as there is a lot of competition. For this reason, she does her best to offer good prices and excellent customer service.

Andrea is requesting this loan to buy a display case and stock so that she can expand her product offerings and improve her sales. She hopes that, by strengthening her business, she will be able to guarantee her son a better quality of life and a good education.
