A loan of $1,625 helped a member to improve her beauty salon for her customers.


Milagros De Cumayasa Group's story

Yokasta R. is a hard working single mother of a 10 year old child. She is currently living in a small town in San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. She has a small business near the beach, a beauty salon, where women go to get their hair cut, or to get a stylish hair-do.

The beauty salon has been successful for her. She has been able to pay her bills and take care of her child's needs. In the future she would like install her beauty salon in her very own local area. Yocasta works hard even although she is at present fighting an illness.

She is a member of the "Milagros de Cumayasa" with 9 other women. They all get loans to expand their businesses. Yocasta has used the loans to increase her business. It has been very promising for her to receive the loans, which she has used to buy very comfortable chairs for her clients to sit on while she is using her hair dryer, which she also bought, to dry their hair. She has also used her loan in order to buy merchandises like shampoos, conditioners, and other items.

On behalf of all of them, and our team here at "Esperanza", thank you for your support!
