A loan of $575 helped to buy cloth, creams, perfumes, bed linens, domestic items, etc.

Sixta Tulia's story

Sixta makes her living making clothes and selling merchandise in a neighborhood in the southwest of the city, where she lives with her 3 adult children. Her market is made up of drivers and a clientele of neighbors who have been loyal customers since 1986.

She sells her products on credit, while she makes her purchases with cash in the center of the city and from businesses that she is affiliated with and who give her catalogs so that she can promote their items.

Until now, she has received 11 loans from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She will use this one to buy cloth to increase her production, creams, perfumes, bed linens, domestic items, etc. -- products that have been ordered by her customers and that she tries to fulfill promptly, so that her Kiva loan is a successful investment.
