A loan of $600 helped to buy scissors, gowns, combs, and other items for her beauty salon.


Nelly's story

Nelly is married with three children, who help their parents. They live in a family home, located in the area of Achachicala in the city of La Paz.

Nelly studied hairdressing at a beauty institute and worked in this field for ten years in her own beauty salon. Later, she made a living selling prepared food. She recently returned to working in her own hair salon and began to care for her husband, who is in medical treatment for arthritis.

Nelly works every day in her salon, offering haircuts, manicures, and hair color. She maintains her family with food, clothing, and basic services.

She needs this loan to improve and increase her working tools in the hair salon, which she runs from her home in Achachicala, La Paz. She will buy a new pair of scissors, gowns, combs, disinfectant, etc.

Nelly's dream is to implement the hair salon which she has, as it is her main source of income, and for her husband to recover from his illness. She will then be able to improve her family's quality of life.

This is the third time that she has applied for a loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
