Union Group's story

The 'Union' group is in its tenth cycle in the program. These women are doing a survey on the elimination of poverty in order to know each member's economic situation and to work accordingly. Mercedes is part of this group, and explains that she is a hairdresser. She has a small beauty salon where she provides very good customer service. She has built up a very good customer base because she is very kind and attentive. Her goal is to be able to continue expanding her business and to be able to give work to others who need it. Mercedes is requesting this loan for the purchase of supplies to stock her salon, such as dyes, files, rollers, scissors, shampoo, and more. This will help her to solidify her business plan, which will allow her to improve her income.
