A loan of $750 helped to buy hair glitter, dye, and hairspray.


Tatiana Del Carmen's story

Dyes, shampoo, and hair products in general are what Tatiana is going to buy in order to have them available in her hair salon, since there are many customers waiting to alter their appearance for one of the most beautiful festivals in Colombia, "The Carnivals of Barranquilla". Tatiana's customers will show off highlights, hairstyles, colors, and carnival-style makeup. This is why she is taking out a Kiva loan, since with it she will buy hair glitter, hairspray, and dye. She says she is thankful for the help received from Kiva, and she hopes they continue to develop this noble work throughout the country. Her previous Kiva loan went very well for her. She was able to buy tools for her work such as a professional hair dryer and hair irons, and as a result today she offers a good service and she is much more comfortable working. Her sales have increased and her customers are much more satisfied.
