Duverlys
Duverlys is 34 years old and lives with her husband and their three children, who range in age from 10 to 12. Her business experience began 6 years ago when she and her mother opened a store that sold groceries and other basic necessities. However, Duverlys and her family later had to leave their home, since they were displaced and had to go to live with her sister. She restarted her business 7 months ago, though with only a few basic staple items. By working persistently she has managed to make some progress, but her biggest challenge is working capital, since she doesn’t have enough for her growth plans. She also needs more money so she can help her husband with the household expenses; he works farming a parcel of land and raising livestock. That is why Duverlys has decided to take out a loan. This is her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, and she will use it to purchase a larger amount of groceries, supplies, and sweets. Her business is located in front of a school, and she offers her customers items that they really need. Duverlys’s dream is to sell much more so that her business will prosper and she can get ahead with her family and provide her children with a good education and quality of life.

Duverlys de 34 años de edad vive con su cónyuge y sus tres hijos en las edades de 10 a 12 años. Ella inició desde hace 6 años su experiencia de negocios con su madre, mediante una tienda donde vendía ranchos, víveres, abarrotes y artículos de la canasta familiar. Ella debió salir con su familia de su vivienda, pues fue desplazada y debió irse a vivir donde su hermana y volvió a iniciar allí su negocio, aunque con unos pocos productos de la canasta familiar, hace 7 meses; con su persistente trabajo ha logrado avanzar un poco, pero su gran desafío es el capital de trabajo, que se torna insuficiente ante sus planes de crecimiento, pues necesita también ayudar mucho mas a su marido en los gastos de su hogar, quien trabaja en una parcela cultivando y criando animales. Esta es la razón por la cual acude a su credikiva, primer financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, con el cual comprará en mayor cantidad, víveres, abarrotes y productos de dulcería, pues está ubicada frente a un colegio y su sueño es poder vender mucho mas, teniendo en la oferta lo que el cliente realmente necesita, para prosperar y salir adelante con su familia y poder brindarle una buena eduación y bienestar a sus hijos.
