With 21 years of experience in the beauty and hair industry, Anna decided to go into business for herself one year ago and opened Anna’s Beauty Salon & Spa.

Anna currently works alone full time, but plans on hiring another full-time employee. However, she is taking precautionary steps to ensure her business stays afloat. Knowing she needed more equipment before taking on more clients, Anna turned to a friend –another salon owner—who referred her to nonprofit microlender Accion Texas Inc.

The loan will help the 40-year-old as she continues her endeavors as an entrepreneur providing for her six children through her business. Specializing in hair coloring, Anna also offers styling, cutting and up-dos for special events, and nail work. View all of what Anna has to offer via her website:
