Dany
Dany is 30 years old. He owns his own gym where he offers fun and effective health services. His enterprising idea came when he was working out at a gym in his cousin's gym in 2007. He saw that it was a profitable business and he started to dream of opening one. His dream came true when his relative went to another city and sold him the business. His market is the people who live in the neighborhood where he lives and in nearby areas. He always puts out flyers there and offers his customers a good service that incentivizes sales of his gymnastic menu. His goal for the future is to expand it, adding an aerobics room, which will gradually increase what he has to offer. This is the reason that he is turning to his first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it, he will make improvements to his locale that will make expanding it easier, increasing the potential for customers and their comfort. This has been a big challenge with all the growth.

Dany de 30 años de edad tiene su propio gimnasio, donde vende servicios de salud divertidos y efectivos. Su idea de emprendimiento surgió cuando practicando gimnasia, en un negocio de su primo en el año 2007, observó que era un negocio rentable y empezó a soñar con su montaje, logrando su sueño cuando su familiar se fue a otra ciudad y le vendiera el negocio. Su mercado está concentrado en el barrio donde habita y en los sectores ubicados alrededor de este, en ellos hace permanente volanteo y ofrece a sus clientes reales buen servicio, que incentiva la venta de su menú gimnástico. Su meta más adelante es expandirlo agregando una sala de aeróbicos , con la que gradualmente incrementará su oferta ; esta es la razón por la cual acude a su primer credikiva en la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, pues hará adecuaciones locativas, que facilitan extender su local, aumentar el potencial de clientes y la comodidad de estos, que con su crecimiento se ha convertido en un gran desafío.
