Ismari De Jesus
Ismari, 48, works making clothes especially for men. She started out with her husband manufacturing uniforms 17 years ago and gradually after her separation focused on making men’s clothes. Her main products are shirts, pants and sweaters. Her business grew both in machinery and infrastructure that led to her being able to make still finer clothes and because her clientele started to grow, she opened a store to sell her own designs. Today, she continues to grow because she has a large clientele she sells to on credit and for cash. She works from 8am until 6pm aiming at filling their orders promptly and generate greater wellbeing with every day that goes by.

She’s currently applying for a Kiva loan, her second financing with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo that she’ll use to buy fabric, thread, zippers and buttons in larger amounts to meet end-of-year demand which is always greater than in other times of the year and she must be prepared for it; this is why her Kiva loan will be very successful.

Ismari de 48 años de edad, se dedica a la elaboración de prendas de vestir para caballeros Especialmente. Ella inició con su esposo, fabricando uniformes desde hace 17 años y poco a poco después de su separación, se enfocó en la ropa masculina, siendo sus principales productos las camisas, los pantalones y los suéteres; así su negocio fue creciendo en maquinarias e infraestructura, que le permitieron darle un mejor acabado a la prenda y como su clientela empezó a incrementarse, la llevó a ubicar un almacén para comercializar sus propios diseños. Hoy quiere seguir creciendo, pues tiene mucha clientela que le vende a crédito y de contado y ella trabaja desde las 8 de la mañana, hasta las 6 de la tarde, con el fin de responderles oportunamente y generar mayor bienestar cada día que pasa. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, segundo financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, mediante la cual comprará telas, hilos, correderas y botones en mayor volumen, para responder a la demanda del fin de año, que es todas las veces superior a la de las otras épocas del año, por eso debe estar preparada para ello y así es como su credikiva tendrá mucho éxito.
