Maguy is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to buy new tools such as hairdryers, brushes and hair colorants. As demand for her services increase, Maguy needs to maintain the good quality she has been offering. With the money left from the loan, she will do some aluminum and plumbing repairs in her house.
