Yajaira Cecilia
Yajaira B. Santo Domingo, 35, makes a living as a seamstress and makes clothing to specific measurements. This activity goes perfectly with her retail sales of various merchandise. This has generated income for her, which lets her support her home, which is made up of her, her husband, and two children, who are 1 and 5. They are her motivation in life, and she dreams about seeing them become successful, well-educated people.

Her business was born when she lost her job, so she started her own business so she could continue supporting the well-being of her family and serve the community with her knowledge while generating income. This is her fifth Kiva credit with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which she will buy supplies like fabric, thread, and notions to make feminine dresses to sell to her clients so women can dress elegantly on Mother's Day. With her previous credits, she increased her working capital and her family's income. Her dream is to make improvements to her home until it is completely comfortable. While Yajaira works on achieving her dreams, she also goes to a lot of trouble to strengthen her business to sustain it and to position it well.
