Jahirina's story

Jahirina is 22 years old, she is the owner of a restaurant that was bought by her mother who worked for 3 years in the business and bought it from the owner. Realizing it was a great opportunity, Jahirina and her mother work constantly to make it succeed but her greatest obstacle is not having enough work capital to increase her sales. At present she needs a loan from credikiva, her first through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo; she will buy raw materials like: rice, oil, sugar, salt, vegetables, etc. since they wish to increase their sales and to buy more items cash down to get discounts that will guarantee the success of her investment. Jahirina’s goal is to finish paying off the restaurant and later on buy a stall to make the necessary changes and have a comfortable environment for her customers.
