Neudis, 26 years old, works offering personal improvement services, applying beauty and aesthetic techniques to her clientele that she has won little by little with her excellent personal service. She is married and a mother to a little boy who is four years old, the driving force in her life and the life of her spouse. Therefore, she works to improve her family's life every day. Neudis, before opening her business, worked in a spa while she studied. There, she acquired all of her experience. She started her business going to customers' houses and later moved it to its own location, where she still offers physical and beauty treatments. She also still goes to customers' houses. Currently, in order to give more physical treatments, she rents the equipment, which is getting more and more expensive. For this reason, she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, through which she will purchase equipment for physical treatments and supplies to give massages. Her goal is to add to her equipment in order to attend to more and more clients with better quality and efficiency.
