A loan of $850 helped to buy hair care and beauty products.


Karina Paola's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Karina was able to buy equipment such as hair-dryers, hair straighteners, hair-wash chairs etc. Now she is much more comfortable working, her clients are better looked after, and the offers in her business take immediate effect, increasing her income.

At present, she is applying for a new loan with which she will buy hair care and beauty products for consumption in her business, as well as to sell. This will increase her income substantially and the turnover of the business will increase, and this is precisely the success of her Kiva loan.
