Ilian
Ilian, 42 years old, is the owner of beauty salon located in her home, where she lives with her husband and 25-year-old son. Fifteen years ago, Ilain opened her business, led by her entrepreneurial spirit and training from her mother, who also owns a beauty salon. Ilian helps her clients improve their personal image through hair treatments and styling services such as straightening, haircuts, color treatments, manicures and pedicures. She works from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays as well as on weekends and holidays in the seasons where business is thriving.

Ilian's goal for the future is to see her son finish studying a professional career and be successful. Currently, she is requesting her first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo in order to buy a styling chair, mirror, and beauty products to set up her shop and attract customers. She wants to make sure her clients find her salon a comfortable place with excellent service so that they return. This is exactly what makes her Kiva loan a good investment.
