Mariluz's story

Mariluz is 35 years old, single, and without family responsibilities at the moment and lives in a rented home. She is a teacher by profession, but vocational entrepreneur offering her educational services at a school in her neighborhood, but some time ago she decided to open a little beauty salon in the first floor of her housing that takes in towards the rent as she can simultaneously carry on teaching accelerated haircutting courses for women and men. With her savings she bought furniture, mirrors, and other items successfully establishing her business. Among her clientele can be found friends and neighbors from her locale as well as her own students to whom she gives a special discount. She hopes to eventually establish her venture in a better facility and environment strengthening as a good business. This is her first Kiva loan and she agrees to making her payments on time. At this time she is asking for 1,000 soles to buy more chairs as well as the replacement of some beauty items.
