Ana María's story

Ana María, 31, is single and the mother of a 4-year-old son. She currently has a beauty salon located at home although she also provides services in customers’ homes on a flexible schedule according to their needs. Ana María is an enterprising, hardworking woman. When she got out of high school she trained and started working in beauty salons and barber shops but finally decided to become independent once she acquired experience in this field.

She intends to use the loan she’s requesting to buy supplies and beauty products (make-up, hair color, hair treatments, nail polish, etc.) in order to have enough on hand to continue doing her work and thus attracting more customers that will generate income to continue supporting her home. Her greatest wish is to make the business grow so she can combine various services like spa, beauty salon, permanent make-up, among others and to improve her quality of life in order to be able to offer more employment opportunities.
