A loan of $5,350 helped to buy a hair salon and start working toward her own goals.


Gladis's story

Gladis is a Mexican immigrant who arrived in the U.S.16 years ago. She worked several jobs in her first few years here, but found a long-term career in hairdressing. Gladis’ husband owns a restaurant called Las Cazuelas. Gladis divides her time between the restaurant and working at the William Anthony hair salon. As Gladis has the spirit of a hairdresser, she prefers to work at William Anthony full time. Her entrepreneurial drive, which she also cultivated at an Intersect Fund Class in 2009, has led her to consider buying the salon herself. With a loan of $5,335, Gladis can buy the salon and run her own business. Gladis aspires to grow her business eventually into a complete spa that provides facials, nail care, and many other services.
