A loan of $5,700 helped to purchase a chair and materials needed for artificial nails, a treatment bed, a hair styling station, and a salon mirror.


Rhonda's story

Through this first Kiva-provided loan, Rhonda successfully moved her salon. The move was good for her business, and she has succeeded in maintaining customers and gaining new ones. In her current location, there are other beauty salons, but Rhonda's professionalism and high quality work has succeeded in differentiating her from the competition. She has even gained customers from the other salons.

Rhonda needed this new loan to allow for additional renovations and to purchase a salon mirror, artificial nail application and maintenance materials, and additional cosmetic treatments.

The new station and mirror will assist in further emphasizing the difference of Rhonda's salon from her competition. Rhonda wants to continue to see her business grow. Eventually she wants to include a wide variety of beauty treatments and programs.
