Yasunary's story

Yasunary is 35 and lives in Soledad with her husband and 4-year-old son. There she sells women's and men's shoes, women's accessories, perfumes, and watches. She started her business 2 years ago when she started selling shoes as her star product. Today she has added accessories, school supplies, jewelry, toys, beauty supplies, and even sweets. Her growing clientele has driven the need for working capital to respond to orders, especially in the time when her sales are picking up. Since the holiday of the "Day of Love and Friendship" is coming up, her challenge is to get the necessary resources to inject capital into her business to be able to respond appropriately to the demand. This is the reason she is turning to Kiva for her first loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She will use it to buy women's and men's shoes, women's accessories, perfume, and watches. Her customers want to show their affection to their loved ones and friends on this date.

Her future goal is to have a grocery store where she can display her products and protect herself in the future with various points of sale. She continues working hard to keep her business with the numbers that show the potential of financial growth. She has a profitability of 25%, is 98.24% independent, and has an inventory turnover of 54 days. Her accounts payable turnover is 9 days. These are all indicators that will drive her growth.
