Julian Antonio's story

Julián is thirty-six years old and lives in the municipality of Soledad, a metropolitan area of the city where he makes a living in selling various products, which he distributes between his clients on credit. He has been doing this for nineteen years, ever since he left high school and he felt the necessity to generate an imcome in order to satisfy his needs.

In his business, he began by selling a few things, but he has gradually added other items, like bags, footwear, household items, accessories, and lately, he also sells handmade yogurt, which the people love because it's very natural.

Because sales to customers are made entirely on credit, his working capital is insufficient to grow his customer base since he must wait to collect the money from accounts receivable before he can stock up his business. He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, and it is his first financing through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. He will use the loan to buy clothing for women and men, especially women's footwear. He will prepare to respond to the requests of his customers for Christmas, a season in which families wait for the festivities to look elegant and to welcome in the new year.
