Omaira's story

Omaira, who is 51-years old, is a hair stylist. Among the services she offers are hair cuts, coloring, straightening and treatments. Her clientele likes her services a lot because Omaira offers quality services. Since she was a little girl, Omaira has liked beauty and makeup. And so, after she separated from her husband, Omaira turned to the techniques she had learned to generate a new income and increase her household's well-being. Her family is made up of four children, who are now between 19 and 30 years old. Omaira offers her services from her point of contact, located in her home, as well as in her clients' homes. She works everyday from 10:00am until 7:00pm. Omaira's goal is to continue outfitting her business by stocking it with beauty products purchased in greater quantities so she can finally not depend on her children. Omaira is currently requesting a Credikiva, her first financing through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it, she will purchase one display case and beauty products with which to fill it. She will also purchase a machine for cutting hair.
