Mayra Alejandra Alvarez Garcia is a hardworking entrepreneur who lives with her husband and daughter in Barranquilla, Colombia. To help financially support her family, Mayra opened up a beauty salon in her village where she provides her clients with nail and hair services. However, Mayra found it hard to keep her salon stocked on the small profit she was making. Mayra was concerned that if she couldn't expand her business, she would have to close her salon. Everything changed for Mayra when she heard about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, Mayra was able to purchase her inventory of beauty products and supplies in bulk at a lower cost. This allowed her to serve many more customers without running out of supplies. Mayra is excited that this business growth has allowed her to be more economically stable in her business and easily provide for all of her family's daily needs. One day she would like to open up another beauty shop in her community, so that she can increase her clientele and provide an even more secure financial future for her family.
