“I was matched with Catrin, a hair and make-up consultant living in Barcelona, and we work closely together over the course of a year to revise my business plan, expand my client base and chart out ways that I could achieve my dream of opening my own shop.” -Teena Manaf. www.empowerwomen.org, Feb, 5,2015
