Dileys Maria's story

Dileys, age 25, is a small businesswoman from the Soledad municipality. She has had a business of selling fish and cold meats for four years. She lives in a rented house, is in a common-law marriage, and has two children. She started the business with help from her husband and savings from previous jobs. The business has become the second source of income for the family.

Due to the pandemic, her sales and earnings were affected. Thanks to the financial reactivation, her sales are increasing. That is why she is looking to mitigate the impact of Covid-19. She is currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo. She will use the loan to buy red and black bream, chub, blue fish, and meat, etc. Please help her with her business loan. It will be a success.
