Gorgeous in Jerusalem

I’m Olga, a new immigrant from Russia. I’m passionate about enhancing my beauty salon to offer exceptional service to my clients. I am looking for help as in light of the war, the business has suffered a significant decline in income. The absence of shelter and the prevailing fear have deterred people from visiting. 

My impact loan status:

$10,404 / $10,404

Micro lending, Macro Impact

With the loan from SparkIL, I will upgrade my equipment and purchase more materials so I can offer my clients the best possible experience.

My business - My spark

My salon provides a variety of beauty-related services, including manicures and hairstyling. I love helping my clients feel beautiful and comfortable with themselves. I have many years of experience, but I am always learning and looking for new ways to improve my business.

A few more words

I live in Jerusalem with my husband. We fell in love with Israel and its climate when we visited the country and decided to move from Russia in 2020.

In light of the war, the business experienced a significant drop in income because we have no shelter and people are afraid to come.
