Adalgiza Maria
Adalgiza María Márquez G. is 35 years old and lives in Cundinamarca with her husband and two children, ages 5 and 13. She sells provisions, food, beverages, and all the necessities that housewives look for when they come by to shop. Since her business is located in a highly populated residential sector, she has an easier time of turning over the merchandise that she sells.


Adalgiza started her business one year ago with the help of her family. It has gradually increased, but often there is not enough money to take advantage of discounted deals. Her products sell rapidly but there is not enough capital to restock because of the increase in prices. For this reason, she has come to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to access her first loan in the amount of 1,500,000 COP to purchase soft drinks, dairy products, sweets, and snacks. With this infusion of operating capital, she hopes to increase her earnings and fulfill her dream of succeeding in her business. Adalgiza continues to grow each day and becomes more disciplined in her capacity to work. One day she hopes to open a self-service store.

Adalgiza María Márquez G., tiene 35 años de edad vive en Cundinamarca con su esposo y sus dos hijos de 5 y 13 años; se dedica a la venta de víveres, ranchos y bebidas y todo lo necesario para que las amas de casa se acerquen y realicen las compras de su canasta familiar, pues en ese sector hay muchos conjuntos residenciales, lo que hace más fácil la rotación de la mercancía que ella vende.
Desde hace un año inició su negocio con la ayuda de un familiar y gradualmente ha crecido, pero no tiene muchas veces efectivo disponible para acceder a las ofertas con descuentos que hacen los depósitos y que como aumentan tan rápido los artículos y sus productos rotan rápidamente no tiene existencia en deposito que soporte el aumento de los precios. Es por esto que acude a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo para hacer su primer crédito por valor de $ 1.500.000 que invertirá en la compra de artículos como refrescos, lácteos, dulcería y mecatos con esta inyección de capital de trabajo, busca incrementar sus ingresos y sueña mas adelante con que su negocio se amplíe cada vez mas y es que la capacidad de trabajo y disciplina de Adalgiza, hace posible que algún día un llegue a tener un autoservicio.
