Diana Paulina's story

Diana at 26 years old, is the mother of a five year old child and is the head of the household, as she is separated. She runs her own business, a store that offers beauty products which she started 3 months ago. She learned this work by doing it, by trial and error. She has gained some experience as to how to manage her business. She works alone every day from 9 am to 8 pm except Sunday when she stops at noon. She generates the revenues necessary to pay the basic expenses of her household and supports her son by doing this. Her clients characterize her as a vigorous, dynamic and enterprising woman. She's always on the look-out for better ways which help her progress.

So Diana is asking for this loan to invest it in buying stock wholesale (dyes, hair treatments, cosmetics, nail polish and decorations for the nails, etc.) and make some changes to her shop. She wants to create a better image for the establishment so she can attract more customers. She would like to be able to offer them a greater variety of products to satisfy their varied likes and needs. All this should result in an increase in sales and in the end more income, so she can continue to provide for the well-being of her child.

Diana dreams of owning her own place for her business and in this manner have the opportunity to continue advancing and strengthening her business. In the medium term she would like to expand and open a few branches. For the moment she is conscious that she must put a lot of effort and dedication into her work to make sure that her business is profitable. She wants a stable economic situation which would offer the possibility of providing a better quality of life and a good education for her young son.
