Tatiana
Tatiana has always lived among machines, fabric, thread and scissors since she was a little girl because her parents had clothes making shops and at one time had more than 50 employees. Because of this, when she became an adult and formed her own family at the age of 17 she dedicated herself to this art that she carries in her genes. She took advantage of the fact that her spouse supported her in order to start out and that he worked in a clinic and they were able to get contracts from it to make surgical apparel that they did very well with.

Later, after she separated from her husband, she suspended work but once she recuperated, she started it up again and has it to date. She owns fixed assets appropriate to her productive capacity. Her customers are located in the cities of Cartagena, Montería and in the city of Barranquilla where she provides assembly services for a confections supplier. She currently lives with her parents and her minor son who she dreams with seeing becoming a successful man and a magnificent human being.

She is currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo that she will use to buy fabric and supplies like thread, clasps, zippers, elastic and beading to make her apparel. Her greatest challenge is having enough working capital to fill her orders and this is precisely what she will accomplish with her Kiva loan which will make this investment successful.

Tatiana ha vivido siempre entre maquinas, telas, hilos y tijeras, desde muy pequeña, pues sus padres tenían talleres de confecciones y llegaron a contratar mas de 50 empleados. Por eso cuando ella tuvo uso de razón y conformó su familia, a sus 17 años, se dedicó a un arte que lleva casi que en sus genes. Así fue como aprovechando que su cónyuge la apoyó para iniciarlo y que este trabajaba en una clínica, donde consiguieron contratos para realizar trabajos en ropa quirúrgica, con las que le fue muy bien. Pero posteriormente después de la separación de su esposo, suspendió su negocio, pero una vez recuperada, lo inició nuevamente como hasta la presente lo tiene. Ella cuenta con activos fijos apropiados a su capacidad productiva, sus clientes están ubicados en las ciudades de Cartagena y Montería y en la ciudad de Barranquilla donde presta el servicio de maquila para una surtidora de confecciones. En la actualidad vive acompañada de sus padres y de su hijo menor, con quien sueña ver convertido en un hombre exitoso y en un magnifico ser humano. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, primer financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, con el cual comprará telas e insumos, como hilos broches, cierres, elásticos, y pedrería para procesar sus prendas. Su mayor desafió es tener el capital de trabajo suficiente para atender los pedidos y esto es justamente lo que logrará con su credikiva, lo que convertirá esta inversión en exitosa.
