Adis Judith
Adis Judith was born in Larica, a town in the municipality of Córdoba. It was there that she dreamed of moving to the city of Cartagena in the future. Today, she has two children ages 17 and 19. One is finishing high school and the other is studying for a university degree. She feels very thankful to God because as the female head of the family, she endured great challenges in providing their education and was always struggling to give them the best.

Initially, Adis worked in the state’s public sector; then she began selling second-hand clothing. In 2004, thanks to the training offered to her by the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, she received her fourth loan and continues to grow as a business woman. At the present time, she has diversified her supply of merchandise. She buys her clothing in Medelin because it is very highly desired by her customers and sells it in Cartagena. In addition, she travels to San Jacinto Bolívar, where she buys hammocks and other crafts which she sells in cities where customers have placed orders. With her Kiva loan, she will buy casual clothing for ladies, gentlemen, and children for her customers who have ordered it to dress up for New Year’s Eve parties.

As Adis is always thinking about income, she works hard. She also sells lottery tickets. All of these activities together, have allowed her to improve her standard of living. Now her dream is focused on owning a boutique because her primary goal as female head of the family is to provide her children with a quality education.
