A loan of $400 helped to buy supplies and merchandise for her hair salon.


Angèle's story

Angèle, age 39, is the single mother of four children. She has been the owner and manager of a hair salon in a district of the city for the past five years. Her determination and enthusiasm have helped her to build a loyal, steadily increasing customer base among the locals, and she now feels the need to bolster her stock of merchandise.

She wants to use this loan to buy hair styling products (hair extensions, caps, accessories) to meet customer demand as well as her own sales projections. She will reinvest part of her profits into her business (high-end hair salon) and use another portion to provide for the needs of her family (tuition, food, lodging, etc.).
