A loan of $1,350 helps to increase her working capital and buy creams, keratin, hair dye, and other products.


Luzdari's story

Luzdari is an enterprising 34-year-old woman who lives in the city of Barranquilla, where she has a beauty salon business.

Luzdari started this business about three years ago out of a desire to improve her quality of life and that of her family. In order to get ahead, she currently offers her products on a daily basis to neighbors, acquaintances, and people in the surrounding areas on cash and credit. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she had to stop operations due to safety and health concerns. Her income has decreased dramatically, and she was greatly affected financially.

She is now applying for her first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase her working capital and to buy creams, keratin, hair dye, and other products to reach a larger number of clients and to increase her sales. Support her with this loan for her business.
