A loan of $800 helped to purchase a machine, primary materials, and supplies.


Leidys's story

Leidys is 21 years old. Four years ago, she created a business through which she makes a living producing industrial cloths, elements used in any field of industrial cleaning: printing, iron and steel, aeronautics, automotive, marine, and general industry. Since 2010, when she learned from a friend who made a living from it, she began her productive work and now does not rest from producing and selling to companies, working from 9 in the morning until 7 at night.

Her goal is to grow her workshop and finally buy a house, but her work capital is insufficient to achieve her purpose. Today she has approached Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to access a Kiva loan. This is the first loan that she has requested from this organization, through which she will purchase a machine, primary materials, and supplies. With these, she will increase production, making her Kiva loan a successful investment for her business.
