A loan of $950 helped to do some improvements on his gym.


Dany's story

Dany is 30 years old. He owns his own gym where he offers fun and effective health services. His enterprising idea came when he was working out at a gym in his cousin's gym in 2007. He saw that it was a profitable business and he started to dream of opening one. His dream came true when his relative went to another city and sold him the business. His market is the people who live in the neighborhood where he lives and in nearby areas. He always puts out flyers there and offers his customers a good service that incentivizes sales of his gymnastic menu. His goal for the future is to expand it, adding an aerobics room, which will gradually increase what he has to offer. This is the reason that he is turning to his first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it, he will make improvements to his locale that will make expanding it easier, increasing the potential for customers and their comfort. This has been a big challenge with all the growth.
