Mercedes's story

Mercedes, age 48, is an enterprising woman who lives in the city of Cartagena. She works in hairdressing and beauty treatments; she has done this for 24 years. She lives in her own house and is married.

She began the business with a small sale of products and basic hairdressing services. Then, using her savings, she expanded to have her own business and to buy equipment. She began in her house with friends and neighbors in the area, then she decided to establish a fixed location, positioning herself in the market

Due to the pandemic, her sales were affected and thus her income. Thanks to the economic reactivation, her sales are increasing. She seeks to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and is applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing from the Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in the purchase of beauty treatments such as straightening creams, dyes, etc. Please support her loan for her business; it will be a success.
