A loan of $1,175 helped to buy supplies and dishes for her business.


Milena's story

Milena is a very enthusiastic young woman. She is 21 years old and has a high school degree. She started studying to become a stylist, but she was not able to finish her studies because of a lack of economic resources. Being the eldest of 5 brothers and sisters, she was forced to work together with her mother in the sale of snacks and other foods.

Over the years she progressively has become independent, but she needs more capital to continue with her business and to keep helping buy the basic supplies for her home. She wants to improve her business and income by requesting a loan that will permit her to economically help her family and allow her brothers to finish their studies without difficulties. She also intends to finish her studies and to have her own beauty salon.
