Dominga's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to repair the transmission on the minivan.
Dominga is 36 years old and a person with excellent moral and spiritual values, dedicated to serving others. She was raised by her parents who worked in agriculture and also provided transportation services with their minivan. It was her parents who instilled those values in her and who helped her to get ahead and become a good person. In the mornings she helped her dad with the farming, and in the afternoon she went to school, managing to finish 9th grade in the local school. With the passage of time, she was able to acquire much knowledge and experience about farming and transportation services, and began to work full-time with her father. As the eldest of her siblings, this is how she became independent and met her husband with whom she now has five children. They study at the local primary school. Dominga has 15 years of experience in transportation and doing household work. She inherited the minivan from her father which she is currently using to provide transportation services with the help of her husband. She is motivated by the money she earns and by her commitment to provide the best for her family. On days when her transportation services are not needed, she tends to her corn and bean crops which help to feed the family. Saturdays and Sundays are the busiest days for transportation, when she gives rides to people from different areas who go shopping at the market. The money from the loan will be used to repair the transmission on the minivan. Lately there has been increased demand for her service, and the repairs and adjustments will make the minivan more reliable and allow her to provide better service to her customers, resulting in more income. The income generated will be used to cover basic household expenses. In the future she plans to pay back the loan and take out a larger one to buy a new vehicle since the one she has is old and is having some problems. She also plans to support her children with their education until they become successful professionals.
