Diana was very pleased with her previous Kiva loan, which enabled her to buy fabrics in bulk so that she could produce bedding and linens that her customers prefer. As a result, she sold them and earned a profit very quickly.

At the moment, she is requesting another Kiva loan so that she can buy a new supply of materials for making linens because she has to be prepared for the year-end purchases from her customers. They buy the items that Diana produces and use them for home decorations during the Christmas season. She expresses her thanks to the lenders for the support she has received through Kiva and Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. Diana has been able to capitalize her business and increase her earnings, thus allowing her family to move forward, especially her daughter who has hearing and speech disabilities.
