Ana Lorena's story

Ana Lorena is a woman who has worked in the beauty world for a long time. She currently has a small beauty salon and massage parlor. However, she’s been unable with this to earn enough income to cover her family’s basic needs. This is why she’s requesting a one-million colon loan to buy new equipment so she and her business can grow professionally and her customers will feel more comfortable and better cared for and thus she’ll be able to have better quality of life.
