A loan of $1,425 helped to buy decorative and piñata items.


Lorena's story

Lorena is a 32-year old woman who works selling toys and decorative and piñata items. She used to work in party decoration, but realized when buying supplies that piñata products were a profitable business. It was then when she decided to start her own business adventure and now has 2 years of experience in this activity. She started with a small storage that complemented her job as a decorator.

She does cash sales and her main clients are industry neighbors that know that her store is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 8pm. Her goal is to increase her clientele providing a good service and offering the product range that they always need. The number of customers is growing each day, which is why she is requesting a credikiva, her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She will use the loan to buy decorative and piñata items, being careful to choose those that have a higher demand to satisfy needs and make a success of this Kiva investment.
