A loan of $925 helped to buy a new booth.


Sandra Milena's story

Sandra is a cosmetologist who opened her salon 14 years ago. There she offers a large range of body treatments, image management, nail care, and hair treatments. She’s the mother of two and lives with her husband in Madrid, a town within Cundinamarca. Her goal is to continue to expand her business so she can continue to create jobs and buy a house and a car.

She currently works every day of the week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and her customers are very satisfied with her services, so she wants to buy a new booth so she can increase her range of services and continue to offer beauty treatments. She wants to finance this increased capacity via her first Kiva loan, through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. This will represent excellent gains for Sandra and her family, which is her main benefactor.
