A loan of $1,500 helped to buy more chairs and electric hair clippers in order to continue working in his barber shop.


Orlando De Jesús's story

Orlando lives with his two children and wife, who works in business.

For 15 years Orlando has had a barber shop in the downtown area of the city. He's acquired a good deal of experience, and has been developing his business in an excellent manner. For that reason he has a large number of customers who choose him.

Orlando really needs the help of a loan to buy more chairs and electric hair clippers in order to continue working in his barbershop. His prior loan from Kiva helped in his business, and he is about to pay it off 100%.

His dream is to have a larger more professional barbershop.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Laurie Hiller


This loan is special because:

It gives opportunity to families living in high risk areas of El Salvador.
