For years, Ava has followed her passion as a hair stylist, with a clientele from Manhattan to DC. In a creative move inspired by, of all things, food trucks, Ava decided to put her business on wheels. She purchased and began outfitting a commercial van into a mobile hair salon. It has everything you’d expect from a traditional brick-and-mortar salon, but with added convenience for her busy clients.

Ava’s family is excited for this next step in her career, and her daughter has even pitched in and designed an eye-catching logo for her van. Ava will use this loan to install equipment in her mobile hair salon.
