Edis's story

Edis and her husband work every day to offer their 10 year old son a better future. They have a fast food business that is located in a corridor with lots of pedestrians and sell beverages as well. They sell hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages with french fries, and combinations of these items with sodas, tea, or other beverages depending on their client’s preference.They work from Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 12am and Friday to Sunday work from 4pm to 2am. Even though competition is very high, her business is strong because she provides quality products, at reasonable prices, and offers excellent service. She, her husband, and another employee work in the restaurant. In the future, she plans on establishing excellent locales and help her husband prepare little by little. At the moment, she is requesting Kiva and the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation a loan. She will buy wholesale products, materials for preparing fast food, such as salsas and sodas since she must be stocked during the busiest time in June. Since the children finish classes for the summer she has an increase of younger clients. Her dream is to own her own home which is why every effort she puts into her work is to yield more profits to make her dream come true.
