Girardota, Colombia / Beauty Salon

Zuleima Alexandra's story

Alexandra, who is 39 years old, lives with her husband and her young son. She has had work experience as a salesperson in various grocery stores in the municipality she lives in, which allowed her to generate income to support her household for several years. She is an enterprising, hardworking, and very active woman, but a lack of job opportunities made it impossible for her to find employment. For this reason, she decided to go out on her own and start her own business. To achieve this, she is asking for this loan to outfit a space in her home to start her own beauty salon and she needs to buy fixed assets (styling chairs, mirrors, a station, a dryer, a straightening iron) and bulk supplies (shampoo, conditioner, hair treatments) so she can offer her clients good service and take advantage of the experience she has acquired carrying out this service at home. This will give her the financial stability she needs to get her son ahead and to provide the resources to support her household. Thus, she will improve her family's quality of life and offer her son an excellent education.
