Nadia
Nadia, 29, lives with her spouse and two children whose ages are nine years and three months in the southwest part of the city where she offers Internet access and transcription services in her small, home-based business. Needs of her neighbors and the desire to help support her home’s progress were key elements that led her to start her business five years ago and she’s been offering these services ever since. Her main customers are students from local schools needing to do research. She’s open 12 hours daily, every day of the week.

She got a previous Fundación Mario Santo Domingo loan that she used to buy supplies and to build her site because she needed to improve its appearance so she could sell to other sectors and increase clientele more each time. She’s currently applying for a Kiva loan, her second financing from this organization that she’ll use to buy a photocopier and paper supplies to add another service and develop many more growth possibilities with the modernization and permanent upgrading of her equipment.

Nadia de 29 años de edad vive con su cónyuge y sus dos hijos en las edades de 9 años y 3 meses al sur occidente de la ciudad donde ofrece los servicios de internet y transcripciones en su pequeño negocio ubicado en su domicilio. Hace 5 años la necesidad de los habitantes de su barrio y la de apoyar el progreso de su hogar, fueron elementos claves para emprende la oferta de sus servicios, los cuales ha sostenido durante todo este tiempo. Las consultas documentales de los estudiantes en los colegios es su más fuerte línea de trabajo, que efectúa durante 12 horas diarias todos los días de la semana. Previamente recibió un financiamiento de la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, mediante el cual compró materiales y construir su local porque necesita tener una imagen superior que venda a otros sectores y aumente cada vez más su clientela. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, segundo financiamiento que hace a esta organización, mediante el cual comprará una fotocopiadora y papelería para agregar un servicio más a su oferta y desarrollar su muchas más posibilidades de crecer con la modernización y actualización permanente de sus equipos.
