Eliana Patricia's story

Eliana Patricia, age 29, is an enterprising micro-entrepreneur who lives in the municipality of Soledad. Her business is decorating and planning for all types of events. She began her business four years ago. She studied social communication and also enjoyed everything related to party decoration. She began to gain skills in this area, and now she does this work exclusively.

She works from her home and through social media. This has become a source of additional income, being a life project because it is something she likes. She has managed to gain a good clientele that recommends her, and thus she has stability in her business. Her clients are friends, referrals, and neighbors. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, her business diminished and her income dropped drastically due to health issues.

Now she is applying for her first Kiva loan with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in the purchase of printers, decoration materials, and sweets in general, taking advantage of Father's Day and Mother's Day festivities. Support her business loan.
