Yaritza Marinel's story

Yaritza is 19 and has been the proprietor of a beauty salon for four years. She began working in the beauty industry after getting experience with her family, following in the footsteps of her mother and her aunt. She added a hair salon where she offers styling, coloring, haircuts, manicure, pedicure, and general spa services. To reach new customers, Yaritza advertises in advertising media, at her salon, and via out-of-home ad campaigns. Her goal is to modernize her work equipment and bring the spa up to its full potential so that she can have her own house in the future. Her biggest challenge is to have active credit and with these loans she can gradually achieve it. She is currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which she will buy a machine and equipment for styling hair such as a dryer, straighteners, salon beds, and various tools. With these she can provide better services for her clientele and make her Kiva loan a productive investment.
