A loan of $1,400 helped to buy women's clothing.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos, 43, has a small shop where he sells clothing and sport shoes, mainly. With the income he generates at work he is able to support his family, comprised of his wife and 15-year-old daughter, for whom he has great dreams of prosperity.

He has been in business independently for 12 years, since he has always watched and accompanied his mother as she worked as a merchant in a well-known shopping center in the city. He sells his goods at a shopping center in the city and buys his merchandise from different suppliers. He has customers who visit the shop, and he also makes home delivery of his merchandise. He works with different companies who offer credit, so he is able to recover his investment little by little.

His goal is to expand his business and provide his daughter with a career. He also wants to buy his own house to give his family more stability. He is requesting a CrediKiva loan, his first through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, to buy women's clothing. He hopes to increase his stock with fashionable products to attract more customers.
