Fanny's story

Fanny, 56, lives with her partner and has 4 children aged 27 to 37 years old. She works in the preparation and sales of food delivered to homes, a business she started 6 years ago. She was making lunch for her daughter every day and her daughter’s friends liked the food she was preparing, so they convinced Fanny to make them their lunch, too. Little by little, other companies joined in and now she has over 45 fixed clients per day. Since she sells on credit, she’s not able to buy ingredients in large quantities, so she has to go to the market every two days, which increases her transportation costs. She’s requesting a Kiva loan, her 1st one with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to buy rice, oil, meats and other ingredients in large volume so she can diminish the frequency of shopping trips and still have a large inventory of products to offer her customers – this is why the loan will be a success.
