A loan of $1,000 helped to buy beauty products.


Maria Argelia's story

María, age 40, is a hardworking woman who lives with her three children. She works in a beauty salon. Like any responsible mother, María wants her family to live better. Being able to generate extra income enables her to provide everything that her children need.


Wanting to improve her beauty salon, María is requesting a loan so that she can stock her business with brand name products that are well-known. These items include hair dyes, skin care crèmes, and other supplies that she needs to provide better service to her customers. In this manner, she expects to improve her earnings.
