Lia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to purchase hairdressing tools, thereby attracting more clients so that she can improve her family's living conditions.


Lia's story

Meet Lia again.

Lia lives with her husband and three children in Kapan town. With the help of her husband, she opened a small beauty salon in the center of the town a few years ago. She perfectly manages to take care of her house, while at the same time receiving many clients during the working day.

With the previous loan provided through the generous support of the Kiva community, Lia made investments to develop her salon. The demand continues to grow and Lia needs to make some further enhancements.

Thus, Lia requested this loan to purchase hairdressing tools. Lia is sure that this enhancement will help to attract more clients so that she can improve her family's living conditions.
