Mirly Isabel
MIrly works making and selling crafts like backpacks, purses, cases and accessories. She started her enterprising alternative when still very young because it’s tradition among women in her native San Jacinto and with it she’s managed to support and school her children who are now 14, 17 and 21 years of age. She sells her products by traveling to Sincelejo, a city in the northeast of the country, on the Colombian Caribbean coast. She also sells from home where she lives with her spouse and children. Her goal is to expand her customer base and to sell other crafts too make in various parts of the country and to expand her productive capacity. She’s currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to buy yarn to make backpacks and purses she has on order; her presales are what guarantee effective sales thus insuring her Kiva loan’s success.

Mirly se dedica a producir y comercializar productos artesanales como mochilas, bolos maletines y accesorios; su alternativa emprendedora la inició desde muy joven, pues es tradicional entre mujeres de su natal San Jacinto y con ello ha logrado apoyar la educación y crianza de sus hijos que hoy se encuentran en las edades de 14, 17 y 21 años. La comercialización de sus productos la hace viajando a Sincelejo un municipio al noroeste del país, en la costa del Caribe Colombiano, y también vende desde su propia residencia donde habita con su cónyuge y sus hijos. Su meta es lograr ampliar la infraestructura de clientes, vendiendo también, otras artesanías elaboradas en diversas zonas del país y ampliar su capacidad productiva. En la actualidad está aplicando aun credikiva, primer financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, con el cual comprará: hilos para hacer mochilas y bolsos que le han encargado y su preventa es lo que garantiza la comercialización efectiva, haciendo así que su credikiva tenga éxito.
