A loan of $625 helped to purchase new machines for trimming and shaving hair.


Luis German's story

Luis bought many supplies such as a professional hairdryer and a flattening iron with which he stocked up his hair salon located in the town of Cartagena de India. He currently has more customers, because with the new hairdryer and flattening iron he offers his clientele a higher quality work. These conditions are satisfactory for him because he used to serve only male customers, and the female clientele is very good and results in better profits. He tells his Kiva lenders: "Thank you for contributing a grain of sand towards the accomplishment of my goals, so that someday I may own a huge salon". He has recently approached Fundación Mario Santo Domingo in order to apply for a new Kiva loan, because he wishes to keep on growing through his own efforts. With this loan he'll purchase new machines for trimming and shaving hair in order to replace the old ones that he's been using. That way he'll once again make an impact on his customers and keep them very loyal.
