Amparo's story

Amparo, who is 23 years old, is the proprietor of an aesthetic salon, where she offers services such as facial cleansing, reducing treatments, and post-hospital therapies. Amparo is an exceptional mother, loving and hard-working, always driven by her pledge to raise her daughter and have her become a successful professional. She lives with her parents, who have been her principal support, and now with her work in her business, she has managed to help them in return. and she is very grateful to them. Her goal in the future is to have her own house, and for this reason she wants to do her best to increase her customer base with good personal and professional service. Now she plans to access a Kiva loan, her first financing from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which she will use to buy machines and aesthetic equipment to improve the quality of her service and increase her sales volume. Her investment will be successful because she has a potential clientele and professional training to earn their loyalty, and now with the new machines she will provide effective service in comfortable surroundings, so surely her customers will return and will refer the services that Amparo offers in her aesthetic salon to others.
