Nelly Esther
Nelly, 50, has a shop and offers photocopying services and Internet in the town of Soledad where she lives with her spouse. They have three children between the ages of 17 and 32.

She got her experience around 1993 in her mother's business. It was only in 2011, when her mother gave it to her, that she moved it to her home and started to generate income with greater autonomy. Little by little she managed to adapt it with her savings. She bought display cases, added various articles, and built her clientele. Today she has a shop and offers photocopying and telephone services and sells party gifts, school supplies, cookies, sweets, etc.

Her growth is superior to her possibilities of responding to market demand, which is exactly why she's requesting a Kiva loan, her first financing from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She's going to buy soft drinks and pastries to stock her food display case.

Her personal goal is to support her children so they become successful professionals and have better options for their well-being.
