Marcela Patricia's story

Marcela, age 22, is a young shopkeeper in the municipality of Santo Tomás, who dreamed of starting her own business, and so she set up her store selling provisions and groceries in this community. She is single and lives in her parents' house.

Her principal challenge in her business is becoming known in the sector, in order to increase the number of clients who come in, and to improve her income. She makes her purchases in grocery stores and from wholesalers. It is necessary to increase her inventory, but she does not have sufficient capital. This is why she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to invest in wholesale products: rice, oil, grains, legumes, and dairy products.

Her goal is to continue incorporating new products in her business and to increase her sales. Please support her.
