A loan of $1,125 helped to buy merchandise and to do physical improvements to her salon.


Katiana Paola's story

Katiana used her previous Kiva loan to buy indispensable dressing table items for her activity and did some physical improvements to the site to offer better service to her numerous clientele who she offers personal image improvement services, manicures, pedicures, etc. Thanks to her previous Kiva loan her sales increased and her customers are very satisfied.

Katiana is currently applying for an new Kiva loan to buy more of the products that are her best sellers like creams and perfumes and will continue doing physical upgrades to her space to provide the customer comfort they require because this is her dream of prosperity.

Her message to Kiva lenders is: “Thank you for making my dreams a reality to continue growing as a person and as a businesswoman.”
