Ana H. is applying for her second Kiva loan. She will use it to buy raw materials, supplies and fruit. She will also make some structural improvements to her premises. These investments are likely to be successful because Ana sells to order and she has a lot of customers who make a lot of regular purchases, as do local stores. As her production space is proving to be very small, she urgently needs to make some changes in order to speed up her production process.

Ana is very happy with the loans she has received from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and she gives thanks to Kiva lenders for supporting her as she strives to get ahead in life. She has had a weight taken from her shoulders as previous loans that she took from private individuals charged very high interest rates. Ana used previous loans to buy her mill which has enabled her to increase her production and her sales. This has all helped to improve her standard of living.
