Yadira Isabel
Yadira García makes leather goods, a trade she learned when her husband worked in a shop that was constantly closing down. She used to work from her home and her husband distributed the products to the major shopping centers in Barranquilla. They also sold retail outside; that is Yadira would manufacture the goods and her husband would sell them. This experience lead to what she does exclusively today, making beautiful and colorful purses, wallets, and very modern synthetic accessories. Yadira is very dedicated to her work and in touch with the current fashion, so that she can create or copy the designs that her customers like best and are most profitable.

This will be her second loan through “Fundación Mario Santo Domingo.” The first loan allowed her to increase her production and subsequently created a need for working capital that she had not counted on. Now she is asking for a Kiva loan to buy supplies, such as leather, glue, slide fasteners, straps, carabineers, white glue, eyelets, and cardboard. She want to create a new collection so that she can take advantage of the approaching day of “Love and Friendship,” and also to prepare for the holiday season, when demand for her products goes up and her sales increase.

Her goal is to prosper in her business, through expansion, and above all position herself in the market so that her family can get ahead.

Yadira García es una mujer dedicada a la marroquinería, oficio que aprendió cuando al trabajar su esposo en un taller que continuamente cerraban, ella fabricaba en su casa y sus productos los distribuía su esposo en centros comerciales importantes del centro de Barranquilla y también vendía al detal en la calle, es decir la producción a cargo de Yadira y la comercialización en manos de su esposo. Toda esta experiencia generó el que en la actualidad se dedica exclusivamente a fabricar hermosos y coloridos bolsos, carteras, accesorios sintéticos y muy modernos, porque Yadira es una mujer comprometida con su trabajo y siempre está atenta a la moda, para crear o emular los mejores diseños que agraden a sus clientes y que sean rentables.
Este es su segundo crédito con la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, con el primero aumentó su producción convirtiéndolo en un capital de trabajo nuevo, con el que ella no contaba; por eso ahora está solicitando su credikiva para comprar materias primas e insumos, como cuerina, pegador, correderas, slider, trabillas, mosquetones goma solución blanca ojetes y cartón, para sacar una nueva colección, aprovechando que se acerca el día del amor y la amistad y preparándose desde ahora, para los últimos meses del año, época en la cual hay una gran demanda de sus productos y por consiguiente sus ventas se incrementan.
Su meta es prosperar siempre en su negocio, mediante la expansión y sobre todo el posicionamiento gradual en el mercado, para que su familia progrese.
