A loan of $1,050 helped to buy a refrigerator.


Monica's story

Mónica is the proprietor of a snack bar located in the town of Soledad where she lives with her 2 children who are the driver of all her efforts so that they will enjoy a good life. To this end, she has had 2 loans from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase her business capital and gradually increase her income, with the goal of achieving a good income. She used the first loan to supply her business with beer and her sales increased, generating better profits and increasing her family's quality of life. Mónica sends a very special message about this support: "Thank you very much for offering me the opportunity to succeed in my business." She is currently applying for her second loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and it is her first Kiva loan. She will use it to buy a refrigerator to keep her drinks colder as, in this hot climate, cold beers and sodas are much better to drink and quench the thirst produced by the hot environment of this beautiful and very tropical Caribbean land.
