Maria Estenia's story

María Estenia is a 37-year old married woman and mother of a son. She is originally from the municipality of Chinandega, located on the west side of the country, and is a hard-working and responsible woman that has fought to get ahead since she was very young. With big effort and hard work, she was able to finish her secondary education, although unfortunately she could not attend university. She enjoys her free time with her son listening to music and telling him stories from her childhood.

Motivated by her enthusiasm and her wish of self-improvement, she started a beauty salon in her house, where she offers several services: haircuts, dyes, manicure, pedicure, massages, acrylic nails and hairstyle. She also sells Omnilife products (cosmetics and others) and has both regular and occasional clients.

One of her dreams is to improve her business conditions and to offer a better service. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy products for her salon and cosmetics such as dyes, acrylic nails, hair straightening lotions and make-up, among others. Thanks to this loan she'll be able to offer better products to her clients.
