Dora
Dora, 39, lives in her own house with her 10-year-old son Jesús. They live in a dwelling located in a populous neighborhod north of the city. From an early age she liked art, which is why when she had to support her young son alone, she could not think of a better idea than making glass handicrafts.

A year ago, Dora set up her stall selling all kinds of crafts in a market in a very commercial area of the city visited by tourists. She shares the work of managing the stall with an assistant so that they can take turns opening up shop. She says proudly that her stall is open for business from Monday to Friday, and weekends are devoted entirely to producing glass handicrafts. Dora enjoys shaping the glass, painting it, and finishing shaping it to produce a product that decorates rooms around the world. Her excellent customer service skills generate a good income, which allows her to raise her child without difficulty.

Because Dora is such an enterprising woman, she plans to expand her business by stocking her stall with a variety of merchandise in order to offer the best to her customers. This is her first loan with Kiva Partner MFP and she promises to complete her payments on time so as not to disappoint all the people who have put their trust in her. Dora plans to invest the requested loan in buying more merchandise of varied crafts to better stock her store and offer the best to the tourists who often visit it.

Dora, de 39 años, vive en su casa que es propia en compañía de su pequeño hijo Jesús de10 años, juntos habitan en una morada ubicada en un populoso barrio al norte de la ciudad. Desde muy joven le gusto el arte, es por eso que cuando tuvo que mantener a su pequeño hijo sola, no se le ocurrió mejor idea que fabricar artesanías en vidrio. Y hace 1 año instaló su puesto de venta de todo tipo de artesanías en un mercado, en una zona bastante comercial de la ciudad, visitado por turistas; y comparte su labor de comercialización junto a una ayudante, y así se turnan en los horarios de atención. Dice con mucho orgullo, que atiende su negocio de lunes a viernes y durante los fines de semana se dedica por completo a producir las artesanías en vidrio, pues le gusta darle forma al vidrio, para luego pintarlo y acabar dándole forma para que adornen las salas de diferentes partes del mundo. La buena atención que proporciona a sus clientes, le genera ganancias, que le permiten criar a su hijo sin dificultad. Como es una mujer bastante emprendedora para mas adelante tiene planeado ampliar su negocio ya que desea surtirlo con diversidad de mercadería para ofrecer lo mejor a sus clientes. Es el primer crédito con MFP y promete pagar sus cuotas puntualmente para no defraudar a todas las personas que depositaron su confianza, al otorgarle el dinero que le permitirá continuar progresando. Dora tiene planeado invertir el crédito solicitado en la compra de mayor cantidad de mercadería en variada artesanía que necesita para surtir mejor su tienda y así ofrecer lo mejor a los turistas que la visitan seguido.
