A loan of $1,200 helped to buy mirrors and chairs.


Dina Sendy's story

Dina is 23 years old, single, and lives in the city of Ica with her parents and her siblings. She is a kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to better herself. Thanks to the hard work and support of her parents, Dina was able to study cosmetology. In her free time she likes to cook, especially delicious green tagliatelle, which is her favorite food.

Dina works at her small beauty salon on her own initiative and with a lot of effort and dedication. She offers hairstyling, makeup, manicures, and pedicures. Dina works every day starting early in the morning and she can go for around 10 hours. She thinks she is doing well because of the quality of her services and because she treats her clients well.

Dina is very thankful to Kiva's lenders, as it is thanks to their help that she will be able to buy mirrors and chairs. These will go a long way toward improving the set-up of her business and they will allow her to see more clients. She will keep working and applying herself so she can get ahead and achieve her greatest dream of owning her own home.
