A loan of $900 helped to buy furniture and equipment.

Santa Margarita's story

Margarita is from Piedras Negras. She has been living in this city for more than 18 years. She is married and the mother of two children, a boy and a girl. She has a beauty salon where her son helps her cut men's hair while she tends to the women. She also has worked taking care of an older man for two years and her husband works running a hotel that is well known in the city.

Margarita is asking for help through KIVA to buy furniture and equipment for her business, since the chairs she has that the customers sit in have deteriorated. One one of the two she has is working because something is broken and that is why she would like to buy new ones to avoid an accident with a customer and to keep being preferred by her customers, as she is now.
