Fabiola's story

For the past 23 years, Fabiola has been making family clothing, selling products from specialized guides and catalogs, as well as personal hygiene supplies everyday in cash and through credit. She started her business on her own in order to preserve the family tradition while earning money to support the welfare of her husband and son who is now 35 years old. Little by little, Fabiola has been expanding her business and adding more variety to her merchandise. Thanks to her relationship with her clientele, she has been able to take advantage of the domestic market.

Her primary offerings are underwear for women and men, products from her catalog such as clothing, and personal hygiene products. She is currently seeking a Kiva loan, her 25th loan with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which she will use to purchase raw materials and supplies, underwear as well as toiletries. With this investment, she plans to increase her working capital in order to sell new products that her clients have requested for the upcoming season which has many festivals, Christmas and New Year's as well as graduation, family gatherings, weddings, etc. With her previous loans, she has been able to strengthen her business and grow its structure, which strengthened her personal and business image.
