Esperanza's story

Esperanza is 43 years old, married, and has two children who are 14 and 20 who depend on her for their education and food. She lives in her own house with her family. Esperanza has a beauty salon where she does hairstyles, haircuts, manicures, and other services. She has been doing this work for 9 years. She works alone since the other half of the store is used for another business by her sister. The thing she likes about her work is that she has the freedom to decide what time to spend at work. She has long-time customers who know that she does good work, so they come back every so often for her to give them a new look. She hopes that soon she can use more accessories and do other types of work. Currently she is requesting 1,000 soles. She is very excited and grateful for the financial support being offered to continue with her plans. With the money requested, she will purchase supplies and accessories such as scissors, different colored nail polish, hairpins, hair caps, and other details so that she can continue providing good service to her loyal customers.
