A loan of $375 helped to purchase merchandise to sell in her beauty salon.


Doris's story

Doris is a hard working business woman. She is 31 years old, single, and lives in Imperial with her family. She has a son who is the biggest inspiration in her life, and her motivation to get ahead.

She has owned a small beauty salon for almost 2 years, which has been going well for her: she is a responsible and hardworking person, and above all, her clients are fascinated with the beauty services and advice she provides.

Doris is grateful to the Kiva lenders because, with their support, she will be able to purchase merchandise to transform her business into not only a beauty salon, but also a place that sells personal care products. With this, she will have a higher income which she will then be able to use to open more branches.
