A loan of $400 helped buy products for her beauty salon.


Angélica's story

Angelica is 44 years old, married to Mario, who is 53 years old. They have two children, Juan, 20 and Dante, 13. One year ago, she started her own hair salon, where she works today. Before that she worked in a friend’s salon where she learned everything she needed to start her own business. What Angelica likes about her job is the counseling role she plays with her clients. While she cuts, styles and perms their hair, they often tell her their problems and ask for advice. Her business is slowly growing and based on a lot of hard work and dedication she is seeing her first earnings. Because of this she needs our help to achieve all of her goals. Angelica is in her second loan cycle with Microfinanzas Prisma. With the loan money she will buy more supplies and products to improve the service at her salon.
