Chantal's story

Greetings from Chantal in her beauty salon in Kimironko, Rwanda. Chantal is 26 years old and married. She has adopted three orphans. Chantal, who has been in this business for two years, also works in the African Library. In addition to that, her salon business in Kigali attracts many working-class clients. She employs three people in her salon. She is open from 8am until 7pm every day. One of the challenges in her business is not having enough equipment in the hair salon, especially for her women clients. Chantal has requested a loan from Kiva lenders to purchase more essential materials for her beauty salon. With this profit, Chantal will reinvest in her business and save for her future.
