Florinda's story

Florinda is 49 years old, divorced, and has 2 children who are 27 and 18 years old. She lives with them in her own house. Florinda has her own beauty salon within her house where she attends to her customers in a friendly manner, offering them good service. She started it 4 years ago with her own money and doing all the work herself.

She likes her beauty salon and learned everything she needs to run it from a school in her community. With the funds that her work earns her, she wishes to continue to improve her business by expanding her beauty parlor and thus be able to serve more people and make her customers more comfortable.

This will be her 7th Kiva and she is grateful for the support that she gets that helps her progress. In addition, she promises to make her payments on time. With the amount requested (1,000 sols), she will buy supplies to add to her beauty salon, including dyes, nail polish, scissors, etc.
