Dionisia
View original language description ↓
Dionisia M. is the mother of 8 children, all school-age, and has been a member of the Asociación Futuro of Pro Mujer for four years. Dionisia and her husband work running a mechanic workshop, where they offer metalwork, motor repair, and painting.

In addition to this, she works selling food products, such as dried meat and cheeses, which she brings from the Asunta region and sells at street fairs and markets in the area.

Unfortunately, these two activities do not result in sufficient income to support her large family. For this reason, Dionisia needs capital in order to buy a public transport vehicle (minibus). With this and a membership in a transporters' syndicate she will improve her income without the need to sacrifice her husband, who bears a great deal of the burden of work.

(Translated from the Spanish by Naomi Johnson, Kiva volunteer)

Dionisia M., es madre de 8 hijos, todos en edad escolar, perteneciente a la Asociación Futuro de Pro Mujer, y socia con una antigüedad de 4 años. Dionisia se dedica junto a su esposo, a la atención de un taller mecánico, donde se prestan servicios de chapería, reparación de motores y pintura.

Paralelamente a esto, ella se dedica a comercio de productos comestibles, como ser el charque de res (carne deshidratada), y quesos que trae de la región de la Asunta, para venderlos en ferias y mercados de la zona.

Lastimosamente estas dos actividades no resultan suficientes para la subsistencia de su numerosa familia, es por eso que Dionisia necesita de capital para poder realizar la compra de un vehículo de transporte público (minibús), con el cual y mediante la afiliación de algún sindicato transportista mejorará sus ingresos sin la necesidad de sacrificar al esposo, quien lleva en las espaldas una gran parte de la carga laboral.
