Berta Alicia's story

Ms. Berta is 34 years old and lives in her own home with her life partner and her two children who are 3 and 16 years old. For the past five years she has run a beauty salon and clothing shop from her home. She has a lot of customers because she is a kind, responsible and hard-working person. With her earnings she is able to meet some of her household costs. Ms. Berta is applying for a loan in order to buy clothing such as blouses, pants, shirts, children's clothing and accessories for her beauty salon, such as shampoos, conditioners, hair clips, scissors, etc., in order to improve her earnings and thus improve her family's quality of life.
