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


A loan helped to purchase the latest body, hair and skin cosmetic treatments to resell at her salon.


Nicolette's story

Nicolette invested her previous loan into a purchase of a sound-laser equipment for cosmetic procedures for facial skin. She also moved from one beauty salon to another, located in the city center, due to which her clientele changed and grew. Nicolette wants to invest the Kiva loan into a purchase of the latest body, hair and skin cosmetic treatments to resell at her salon while providing various types of cosmetic service. She bought quality creams, masks, scrubs, and toners so that her clients did not have to search for suitable cosmetics somewhere abroad and could buy necessary products in one place.
