Dominga Del Carmen's story

Doña Dominga is 57 years old and runs a family business with her daughter and two others who perform the manual labor. Her business constructs industrial kitchens with metal bases, which are in demand because they are used by other small businesses like restaurants, tortilla shops and hamburger stands, among other fast foods, and she also makes metal based trash cans and general signs too. Dominga is an enterprising woman who is asking her for first loan from Afodenic and Kiva with the objective of investing the money in prime materials like galvanized tubes, angled beams, regular beams, burners, paints, sealants, and valves so she can meet current customer demand and that of new clients.
