A loan of $500 helped to buy dyes, shampoo, hand cream, and cosmetics, among other products.


Felicita Marleny's story

Felicita lives with her husband and her ten month old son. She has had a beauty salon for three years, and she works from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. She learned this trade by taking cosmetology classes at another beauty salon, which is close to where she lives. She later decided to become independent and create her own business.

The loan that she needs is to buy dyes, shampoo, hand cream, and cosmetics, among other needed beauty products. This investment will help her to have merchandise to sell and the appropriate materials to treat nails and hair, among others.

Her dream is to make her business grow and to get employees to help her. She would also like to improve her quality of life and that of her family.
