I am temporarily operating out of a space in a friend's business. This loan will allow me to purchase a used mobile grooming vehicle which I will park at my home. Then I can work more hours with more flexibility for my clients and with very little overhead. The vehicle will cost more than the loan but I also have some donations from people who support my concept.

Georgina: Altitude Seven

San Francisco, CA

A Kiva loan helps us purchase additional inventory to be able to grow our sales, grow traction, and also invest in marketing efforts to further reach our community of lady adventurers. It helps us get to the next level in our business so that we might be able to qualify for more traditional financing and/or investment. It is a critical time for us and we need support. Thank you so much for your consideration!!
