Juan Carlos
Juan Carlos has a business in his family home. He sells goods such as clothes, sandals, women's accessories and items for the home. Juan Carlos buys, sells, makes offers and records orders, amongst other activities, in his business which is called “Miscelánea Yullis”. He is 21 years old and single. He set up his sales unit 5 years ago on his own initiative as he needed to help with his own expenses and those of his family. Today he has managed to sustain his business and accomplish his goal but he is enthusiastic and would like to continue growing in infrastructure and on a personal level as a small businessman. For this reason he has come to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. This is his second loan.

With this Kiva loan he will buy jeans, sweaters, shirts, casual footwear and stationery items such as note paper, erasers, pens, pencil sharpeners and women's accessories because he is getting ready for December, a time when, he knows through experience, sales will increase. With this investment he will be ready for it. He has not only received loans from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo but also advice and training in improving his administrative performance. This is what has caused his enthusiasm to apply what he has learned and he has done very well.

His future dream is to have another sales location and to improve the condition of his home because he lives in a neighborhood surrounded by many working people, surrounded by business activities and he would like his physical space to be suitable for his family, himself and his customers to feel comfortable in.
