Sandra
Sandra is 48 years old and the mother of a 20-year-old young man. She lives with him in the beautiful city of Bogotá, the capital of Colombia.

Sandra started her own business "to bring a spark of light to people's spiritual lives." She uses the Reiki technique to improve her own life and to help other people through consulting, through the quality benefits of the products she sells, through her kindness, and most importantly, by serving as a means for awakening the consciousness of others, as she explains. Located in a shopping center, she offers feng shui consulting services and sells aromatherapy products and various items.

Currently, she is not able to carry out her plans for expansion because she has insufficient working capital to keep her business stocked with items that turn over quickly due to demand. This is the reason that she is turning to a Kiva loan, which she will use to buy decorative items and aromatherapy products to expand her offerings, finally overcoming all her business and personal challenges and achieving the success she yearns for.

Sandra de 48 años de edad es la madre de un joven de 20 años, con quien vive en la bella ciudad de Bogotá, capital de Colombia. Sandrá creó su propio negocio “para brindar una chispa de luz a la vida espiritual de las personas, pues utiliza la técnica de reiki para mejorar su propia vida y ayudar a otras personas mediante la asesoría, los servicios de calidad de productos que vende, su amabilidad y lo mas importante, es ser ella un medio para el despertar de la conciencia de los demás, como lo expresa textualmente. Ubicada en un punto comercial ofrece servicios de asesorías en feng shui y vende productos aromáticos y artículos varios. En la actualidad sus planes de crecimiento no alcanzan a ser respondidos, porque su capital de trabajo es insuficiente, para surtir su negocio permanentemente, con artículos que rotan muy rápidamente por su demanda. Esta es la razón por la cual acude aun credikiva, con el cual comprará adornos y esencias aromáticas, para ampliar su oferta y finalmente vencer todos sus desafíos empresariales y personales para conseguir su tan añorado éxito.
