Oralia Margarita's story

Oralia is a hard-working, active woman and the mother of an 11-year-old son who she has raised herself. After divorcing her husband, all the economic burden and responsibility fell on her shoulders.

She is 43 years old and has worked 15 years independently as a hairdresser. She runs her own beauty salon where she offers hair cuts, styling, and color; and she also sells merchandise such as clothing, cosmetics and personal care products to earn extra income for her son's well-being.

The loan she is requesting is to buy work supplies and tools (clothing, accessories, cosmetics, scissors, hair color, peroxide). This will enable her to continue in her work and to provide better customer service so she can increase her income.

Oralia says her greatest dream is to expand her business and generate employment opportunities in order to stabilize her family economy and give her son a better education and quality lifestyle.
