A loan of $425 helped to buy three washing machines.


Romario's story

Romario, 20, has been in the washing machine rental business since 2010. A friend of his, who was the owner of the business, asked him to join the company and now Romario is the full owner since his friend had to go off to study and left his part to Romario. He works from home from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. tending to customers who mainly are neighbors.

His goal is to increase his customer base to generate enough income to pay for a good education. Romario is currently requesting his third CrediKiva loan through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation. He will use it to buy three more washing machines so he can have access to new customers and begin striving toward his goal of prosperity.
