Elicth Paola Barrios is a young entrepreneur who lives with her parents in Barranquilla, Colombia. Elicit has always had a passion for the beauty industry, and as a teenager, she started providing hair services for her friends and relatives. Elicth worked hard to grow her hobby into a business, and after finishing her schooling she opened up her own beauty salon. However, even though Elicth loves her work, she has been struggling with expanding her salon. She knew she needed some help if her business was going to become successful. Elicth was happy to learn about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International to help her grow her business. With her loan, she purchased an inventory of high-quality products in bulk as well as hairdryers, which attracted new customers to her salon. She is excited that this growth has greatly increased her business profits, and she looks forward to opening up another location in her town so that she can reach more clients.
