A loan helped to purchase a machine to perform slimming massages.

María Del Pilar's story

Maria is a 52 year-old woman who lives in the town of Madrid with her family. She is very enterprising and wanted to get out of the routine that she faced daily with household chores, so she decided to take a beauty services training course. Her first customers were her friends and family.

Today she is well known in this business and works at home from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. offering manicure, pedicure, hair styling, massage and facial services. She currently needs a machine to offer slimming massages, which is why she is applying for this loan.

This is her first Kiva loan through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation in order to make this purchase and improve her services. Her goal for her family is to buy her own home and for her business, she wants to be able to provide all kinds of on-site spa services.
