Unita
From a young age, Unita knew she wanted to take a different path. “I had no footprints to follow,” Unita shared as she reflected on her childhood. “Many people around me lacked the motivation to boost their own economic situation, choosing not to further their education nor pursue avenues of self improvement.”

After receiving a very memorable massage, Unita was inspired to become a massage therapist and she committed to giving, receiving and studying massage therapy. Earning her certification and license, she started working for local spas. Struggling as a single mom and working hard for years under several different employers, Unita decided to act on her drive to start her own business. Knowing that financial literacy would be one of the keys to success, she took advantage of every available workshop or class to prepare herself to be a small business owner.

It’s been seven years since Unita began working in the massage industry, and she is now seeking a $5,000 Kiva loan to launch her own business and open up her own day spa. A fully funded Kiva loan will allow her to secure a retail space, purchase equipment and do some initial marketing.
