Minerva Del Carmen's story

She is currently applying for a micro-loan (credikiva), her fifth loan investment from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which she has acquired a set of stable assets and has been able to increase her working capital and also her customer base, strengthening her business. She now wants to invest her micro-loan in materials and comestibles for making pastries and cakes and she will also buy cosmetics which people have already ordered from her. Her goal for the future is to continue acquiring new work equipment and continue to support her family and their well-being, as for this she works always in her business with the intention of achieving her goal. She thanks the lenders at Kiva for their work in providing low cost loans, as these loans have served to make better profits for her.
