Guido Berto
Guido, 42, is a man who is dedicated to his business making and selling natural fruit juices, meat pies, and other fried products as well as hamburgers and hot dogs. He does this work to generate well-being for his family, which includes his spouse and his 2-year-old daughter.

He started his business seven years ago, when he arrived here from another city and made a living working for other people. One day he decided to sell orange juice, however, and it went very well for him. So he started with that product and added different fast foods. He works every day in his business from 5 in the morning until 12 noon, but his working capital is not enough to satisfy his demand.

This is why he's applying for a Kiva loan, his second loan from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it he'll buy a tent to protect himself from the sun and the rain as well as to give his business a touch of elegance and a more comfortable atmosphere for his customers. He's also going to buy oranges to make juice.

His long-term goals are to have his own place and to give his daughter a good-quality education so she'll be successful in the future.

Guido de 42 años de edad es un hombre dedicado a su negocio de preparación y venta de jugo de frutas naturales, empanadas y otros productos fritos, además de hamburguesas y perros calientes, actividad que desarrolla con el fin de generar bienestar a su familia, conformada por su cónyuge y su hija en las edad de 2 años. Su negocio inició desde hace 7 años, desde que llegó desplazado de otra ciudad y se dedicó a trabajar para otros, pero un día decidió empezar a vender jugos de naranja y le fue muy bien. Así fue a este producto, le fue agregando variedades de comidas rápidas. En su negocio trabaja todos los días, desde las 5 de la mañana hasta las 12 del medio día, pero su capital de trabajo le resulta insuficiente para atender a su demanda. Esta es la razón por la cual está aplicando a un credikiva, segundo financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, mediante el cual comprará una carpa para protegerse del sol y de la lluvia y darle un toque de elegancia a su negocio, además de brindarle un ambiente mucho mas confortable a su clientela y tambien para comprar naranjas para hacer jugos.
