A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials for providing manicure and makeup services.

Marina's story

From the town of Gyumri, where she lives with her mother, Marina has been providing manicure and makeup services to locals to earn her living for a number of years. As a result of hard work, she currently has a good client base who use her service with great pleasure.

Marina's loan, which has already been approved within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international, will enable her to purchase materials needed for her work. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products. The loan will greatly assist Marina, and she will be very grateful to all the lenders.
