A loan of $275 helped to buy accessories and hair products to sell in her salon.

Llandra Yanisa's story

Llandra is the owner of a small beauty salon that she runs out of her home. She opened this business three years ago in order to provide for her children. Llandra also works in a free trade zone, where she doesn't earn a lot of money, but enough to help her provide for her family. She would like to one day quit this job and devote herself fully to working in her salon.

Llandra is requesting a loan of $10,600 pesos to buy hair products and some other accessories to sell in her salon. She is confident that this will increase her sales and, little by little, attract more customers so that eventually she will not need to work at her other job at the same time. Then she will have more time for her children.
