Ana Griselda's story

Ana Griselda is 44 years old. She is a single mother to two children - ten-year old Ana and 17-year-old Julio, who are both studying. Ana Griselda has had her beauty salon for six years and with her effort, dedication and the love she has for her children, she has been able to prosper. She is now applying for a loan to buy products such as dyes, bleaching agents and peroxide. She also tells us that needs new equipment in order to offer all types of services. Ana's customers sometimes request work that she does not have the necessary tools to do. This loan will allow Ana to expand her business and offer better service to her customers.
