Jacqueline
Jaquelin, 45, lives in the southwestern part of the city where she runs a fried food stall, selling cheese snacks, meat-stuffed potatoes, vegetables, chicken, tortillas and fried "patacones". She has been in business for ten years and started with $50,000 COP in order to cover family expenses and carry out the many dreams she had. Taking advantage of the fact that she likes to cook, she decided to set up business at home and then moved to a nearby location which was more appropriate for food sales when the business grew. Her goal is to provide her children, ages 8, 10, and 14, with a good education and see them become successful people. Her greatest desire is to improve her living conditions, knowing that step by step she will able to give her children a better lifestyle through her work. Currently, she is requesting a CrediKiva loan, which is her first through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to buy a hot food display case and a larger deep-fryer which she will use to attract customers and increase sales by projecting the quality image her business deserves.

Jaquelin de 45 años de edad vive al sur occidente de la ciudad y tiene una fritanguera donde prepara deditos de queso, papas rellenas de carne, verdura, pollo arepas y patacones, su negocio lo inició hace 10 años, con $50.000 COP, necesidades familiares que superar y muchos sueños por realizar. Así fue que aprovechando su gusto por la culinaria, decidió implementar su negocio inicialmente en la puerta de su casa y cuando fue creciendo se trasladó a un lugar cercano, pero de mayor circulación y mas adecuado para la venta de productos alimenticios. Su meta es lograr la educación superior de sus hijos, que hoy se encuentran en las edades de 8, 10 y 14 años y con los que sueña ver convertidos en personas exitosas. Su mayor deseo es mejorar sus condiciones habitacionales, pero ella sabe que paso a paso logrará ofrecerle a sus hijos mas bienestar mediante su trabajo. En la actualidad está aplicando a un credikiva, primer financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, mediante el cual comprará una vitrina calentadora un freidor de mayor tamaño, con lo cual planea impactar a su clientela y aumentar sus ventas, con la imagen de calidad que con ello proyectará, porque su negocio así lo amerita.
