Linda's story

Linda, 28, lives in Soledad with her spouse and four children whose ages range from 1 to 6 years. She has been making fast-food to sell for the last five years. When she was unable to find employment she went into what she knows how to do very well: fast-food meals. She sells pizza, hot-dogs, various items made from fried dough and other items she’s created step by step to please her customers. Her business is located at her doorstep and it’s very well-known among her customers, passersby and local neighbors.

She’s currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo that she will use to buy raw materials like flour, bread, sausages, potatoes, oil and various types of meat in large volume so that she can qualify for discounts that she’ll pass on to her sales price of each product for her distinguished clientele’s enjoyment.
