Yaciris Del Socorro
Yaciris, 24, lives in the "20 de Julio" neighborhood, which is an area that contains both formal and informal activities, commercial zones, buildings, residential complexes, houses, and supermarkets. This is an area known throughout Colombia, because it is very close to one of the most important venues in the city and in Colombia, the Metropolitan Stadium of Barranquilla, where professional soccer is played. This is the home of the "Junior de Barranquilla" team, which is much loved on the northern coast of Colombia.

Yaciris started her business in 2006 with a store located outside of an important mall in the southern part of the city. Here she sells flip-flops and sneakers for men, women and children. Soon she will have a location in the new galleria on the main avenue. Her customers are passers-by to whom she sells on a cash basis, although she has some customers to whom she sells on credit. She attends to this business along with her husband from 9am until 9pm. This Kiva loan will be the second loan that she has received from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, and with it she will purchase sandals and shoes for women in large quantities on a cash basis. This will allow her to stock up her business for the high demand that comes in the second half of the year, the season when she generally sees a big increase in her sales. Her dream for the future is to have her own house, so that she can provide her son, who is 7 months old, with excellent living conditions and a good life.
