Cristina Eloisa's story

Cristina, 28 years old, lives with her husband and has 2 children who depend on her. She lives in her own house in the neighborhood of Tegucigalpa in the center of Honduras.

Cristina has worked in her beauty salon business for the past 4 years. Her business is located in her home, and is her primary source of income.

Cristina is asking for the loan in order to purchase merchandise to stock her business such as shampoo, chemicals, treatments, acrylics, shampoo chairs, etc. so as to improve her business and offer better services to her customers and also to make it grow.

She hopes that this investment will be a great help to her so that her business grows and generates the income necessary to continue profiting and thanks to this, she will be able to improve the quality of life for herself and her family.

She hopes that her two children can finish school and become good people with better opportunities in their lives.
