Ingrid Patricia's story

Ingrid Patricia used her previous Kiva loan to buy glasses, frames and other merchandise wholesale and for cash. She received discounts and was able to slightly increase her working capital. She is currently applying for a new Kiva loan which she plans to use to buy merchandise associated with Carnival season. This is one of the busiest seasons of the year for her in terms of sales. The money that she invests will be quickly recovered and she will be able to re-invest it. In addition, because she will buy in bulk she will obtain special prices which will please her customers and will increase her own profits. Ingrid is very grateful for the financial support that she receives from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and Kiva. She hopes to repay them for their support by repaying her loan on time.
