A loan of $650 helped to purchase a baker's oven.


Silvia's story

Silvia invested her first Kiva loan in the purchase of a variety of merchandise, such as sheets, footwear, bags and cosmetic products, among others, to re-sell on credit, and in the purchase of supplies to make the puddings and breads that she sells. This time, Silvia is turning to Kiva for her second funding through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to purchase a baker’s oven because her products have been very well received and her customers keep asking for more. That is why she can no longer continue making them in an amateurish way and needs to use modern technology and improve quality.

Silva sends this message to her lenders: “I thank you with all my heart for the loan you have given me and for the easy payments. The loan helped me improve my profits.”
