A loan of $625 helped to buy gas cylinders.


Kendy's story

Kendy who is 28 years old sells gas. She supplies to traders in the sector, such as hot-dog carts, vendors of chips/fries etc., who use the gas for their daily work. It was her husband who gave her the idea of selling gas to local traders. He used to work as an employee in a large company and when he became unemployed he decided with Kendy to invest in an independent activity in order to generate income for his family. Her future goal is to have her own delivery vehicle to extend their reach and generate income with which to buy their own home. Currently she is applying for a loan through Kiva, the first loan made through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, with which she will buy gas cylinders in a greater quantity than would usually be used, with which she will expand her client base.
