Dagoberto
Dagoberto, 56, is married and makes a living selling softdrinks and beer, Friday through Sunday. He also works every day as a carpark attendant. He began his business in early 2011 when family, neighbors and friends used to get together on weekends across the street from his house to play dominoes and drink a few beers. There is a carpark there where Dagoberto is the surveillance attendant.

Currently he is requesting a CrediKiva loan, the second through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, to buy larger volumes of beer and prepare for the upcoming weekend which has an extra day's holiday. Dagoberto will use the loan to obtain discounts when buying larger volumes of beverages, meaning his investment will be successful. This will allow him to earn more profit to increase his working capital. With the previous loan he increased his working capital, profits and family well-being, which he wants to continue increasing.

Dagoberto de 56 años de edad es un hombre casado que genera sus ingresos, trabajando vendiendo refrescos como cervezas y bebidas frías, de viernes a domingo y diariamente ofrece servicios de parqueo de automóviles. Su negocio lo inició a principios del año 2011, cuando entre familiares, vecinos y amigos empezaron a jugar dominó fraternalmente y a tomar cervezas los fines de semana frente a su casa, donde hay un parqueadero y Dagoberto vigila el cuidado de sus pertenencias. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, segundo financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, para comprar cervezas en mayor volumen y prepararse para el próximo fin de semana que trae un día de fiesta adicional. Con esta financiación, Dagoberto obtendrá descuentos por la compra de bebidas en volumen y con ello asegura el éxito de su inversión, en tanto esta le provee de mayores utilidades que aumentarán su capital de trabajo. Con su anterior crédito incrementó su capital de trabajo, sus utilidades y con ello su bienestar familiar, el que planea seguir aumentando.
