Betty Isabel's story

Betty is 58 and has two businesses. On one hand, she sells products through specialized catalogue guides. On the other hand, she offers the service of renting out machines for washing. She has been in sales for 10 years. When she started, she connected herself to a business that offers its products through catalogues. Later, she purchased machines for washing one at a time, and his way has grown. Today she sells clothing for men and women, lingerie, home goods, and toiletries. She accepts cash and credit. Her dream is to increase the number of customers and support her children in the education of her grandchildren.

Currently she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation. Through the loan, she will purchase clothing for women, men, and children. She wants to bring cheer to Christmas and New Year’s parties for her customers. Through selling her clothing, she wants to make them feel very elegant and happy with their families during these festivals that are so important to them. Meanwhile, each time Betty sells an article of clothing, she will earn a little more money.
