Delsy
Deisy lives in El Silencio neighborhood where she has a business called "Peluquería Deisy Estilos" (Hairdressing Salon Deisy Styles). She offers haircutting and hairdressing services and all other services related to enhancing the beauty and personal image of adults and children. She started her business eight years ago and, over the years, she has managed to position herself in the market. In order to gain customers, she started out doing home visits and, once she had built up her customer base, she opened premises where she only had one chair and one mirror. She gradually added all the infrastructure that she now owns such as furniture and supplies. All of this is the result of the great care that Deisy has put into making progress and becoming very successful.

This is Deisy's first loan from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and she is applying for a Kiva loan which she will use to buy hairdressing supplies such as shampoo, rinses, massage products and work tools, with which she will improve her service to her customers. Deisy's greatest dream is to own her own premises and create employment with the business growth she is aspiring to. Deisy is a good family member who lives with her husband. They have a 1 year-old son for whom they both dream of building a better future so that he grows up healthy, with the financial and social security that he deserves.
