A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies.


María Ximena's story

Maria is a young 20 year old entrepreneur with a desire to get ahead and become a successful small businesswoman.

At age 20 she works as an employee for a mattress factory and sales outlet, where she learned new skills and got work experience. However she wants to start her own business in the beauty arena and expand her knowledge from the beauty training course she completed. Initially she wants to provide in home services and is asking for a loan to buy work tools and supplies (a dryer, curling iron, tints, hair treatment, nail polish, and other things). This will allow her to begin her plans on the weekends, while she sets herself up financially and breaks away on her own.

Maria, thinking about the future, will set herself up professionally and have her own beauty salon where she can gain her own customers and create employment opportunities.
