A loan of $1,475 helped to buy dresses with modern designs.


Adriano's story

Adriano is 22 years old and lives in a town near the city. There he has a small clothing and footwear store for men, women and children. He needs to stock different clothes to impact his customers. His challenge is to have sufficient working capital to achieve this, which is precisely the reason to use a credikiva (Kiva loan). His first financing is through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, which he will use to buy dresses with modern designs. He is always enthusiastic, because he knows his business very young, but his family members are merchants as well and he wishes to follow in the footsteps of his mother and grandmother. His sales are carried out from Monday to Saturday as 8 am to 8 pm without a break. He buys wholesale for his customers to get the best prices and this is precisely what will make his credikiva succeed.
