Teresa Ivette's story

Teresa is 46 years old and works as a hair stylist at her local shopping center. Thanks to financing from MiCrédito and Kiva she was able to invest in her business and offer her customers a wider variety of products and treatments.

Teresa has now come back to MiCrédito to request a new Kiva loan so that she can continue to invest in her business. She will use this new loan to buy keratin, hair dyes, and other treatments and products.

The profit she makes from her business has allowed Teresa to give her family better living standards. One of her long-term projects is to remodel and expand her beauty salon. She says this second loan will be her first step towards self-reliance.
