"I am a barber and a hairdresser. When I started my activity, I only had one chair in a room, and I was short of equipment. I did not make a good living. Thanks to Louvain Coopération, after studying my needs, they lent me $100. I was able to buy the equipment I was missing and every day I receive 10 to 15 clients. I was able to train two trainees and have access to a micro-credit. Today, I own my own barber shop."
