A loan of $900 helped to make some repairs to her salon: finish the walls and waterproof the roof.

Matilde Rosa Martha's story

Matilde is 25 years old, married, and has 2 children. She lives in the municipality of Juarez, Nuevo Leon, to the east of the metropolitan area. Matilde now has a salon in the front of her home, which she built with a lot of sacrifice. She has been working as a hair stylist for more than 4 years; however, she had not been able to establish herself in a more formal business due to various circumstances. But today, thanks to the support of her husband, she has managed to build a salon, which will allow her to continue with her plans to grow her business. In addition, she is studying in the field of education, which is allowing her to develop in another area.

Matilde comments that she has achieved all of this thanks to some loans that she has taken from Credituyo. This new loan will help her to make some repairs to her roof, improving the appearance of her business. She will also buy some furniture and blinds so that she can have a place that is more cool and comfortable, particularly during the seasons when it is hot.

Matilde comments that one of her dreams is to be able to have 2 or 3 beauticians so that she can generate a source of employment. This would allow her to devote herself to teaching, enabling her to help people in another way.
