A loan of $375 helped to purchase hair salon equipment so her daughter can start working as a stylist.


Irma's story

Irma, age 43, is from the village of Narazeni. She’s married with three daughters (20, 17 and 16 years old). Irma works as a cleaner at the local police office and public school. She gets monthly salaries there. Besides, Irma and her husband run a small-scale agricultural business and grow nuts on family-owned land. They also breed one pig and sell piglets seasonally.

Irma’s family lives in poverty, so they get a small monthly assistance from the local government. Irma’s daughter, Mariam, has recently graduated from hair stylist school and wishes to start working at the beauty salon. Unfortunately, the family is not able to buy needed accessories for Mariam. That is the reason why Irma is requesting the loan now.

With the received amount, she will purchase hair salon equipment such as hair brushes, combs, hair clippers, scissors, a dryer and other supplies. Mariam will start working as a stylist and will generate income. The family will be able to get additional funds and improve their standard of living in future.
