A loan of $1,200 helped to buy dyes, furnishings, curling irons, and cosmetics.

Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil. He started out as an assistant at a hair salon, but later he became a specialist. Now he has celebrity clients that he serves and they are satisfied with his work.

The borrower works on his own from 10:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. He experiences difficulty during the winter because the chemicals used during that time are harmful to him. On occasion he is not able to work because he is a patient living HIV/AIDS.

With this loan, he will buy dyes, furnishings, curling irons, and cosmetics. His dream is to first acquire a home of his own and then get a larger shop, start a family and provide them a good quality of life, and provide jobs to others who are in a similar situation.
