A loan of $600 helped to buy CDs.

Emilce's story

Emilce is 31 years old and has been selling music and movies daily since 2007. She started doing this when a friend suggested the idea to her and she is able to provide for her family’s wellbeing in this way. She has two children, ages 5 and 6. She sells to steady customers who order CDs and to tourists she encounters at the city’s beaches. Her workday begins at 8:00 am and does not end until 9:00 pm. Emilce and her husband are saving up to buy a home of their own and improve their family’s wellbeing, so they work enthusiastically to achieve their dream of prosperity together, and so that it will benefit their children. Emilce is asking for a Kiva loan, her first through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which she will use to buy CDs, which she has customer orders for. This Kiva loan will allow her to increase her sales and income.
