Jorge Leonardo's story

Jorge is 24 years old. He lives with his spouse and his small child who is a year old in the town of Soledad. There he has been in hairdressing since he was 16 years old, responding to his aptitude for business that he has had since he was very young. First he had a store and later he sold it, as his sales had diminished and he didn't see it as a business that would generate much profit. Worried about losing capital, he gave the money to his wife to sell beauty products and start a beauty parlor, taking advantage of her experience working in beauty salons. Today he works every day from 8:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. selling specialized wholesale beauty supplies, which is most economical, on credit and cash. His goal to move forward in life is to have 3 branches and to be able to achieve having his own housing to generate greater prosperity for his spouse and his son. Today he is applying for a Kiva loan, the first financing he has done with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which he will buy 5 hairdressing chairs, a shampoo chair, an air conditioner and beauty products. With these, he will improve the conditions of his business in their image and productivity.
