Noelia Ines's story

Noelia Ines is a 39-year-old micro-businesswoman. She lives in the municipality of Soledad with her son. She started her economic activity due to the financial difficulties she faced after separating from her husband. Motivated to overcome her situation, she found a way to get ahead and started to sell merchandise. Noelia sells items by order or catalog. Her range is very wide: clothing, shoes, perfume, accessories, etc. Her main customers are neighbors, friends, relatives and people referred to her. For this main breadwinner, what is most important is her family's security and wellbeing in the home. That is why she wants to provide her son with financial stability so that he can get ahead, and she can be an example to him. She needs a loan to meet her customers' demand, to fill orders that she has and because the December season is near. Now she is applying for a Kiva loan, the first loan she has taken out with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She will invest the resources in buying merchandise like: jeans, blouses, children's clothing, colognes, creams, makeup, jewelry and more.
