Katherine Del Carmen
Katherine, 32, lives with her partner and two daughters aged 2 and 8 in the municipality of Malambo, part of the city’s [Barranquilla] metropolitan area. She sells varied goods to a customer base she has built for over a year, when her brother-in-law, who sells fruits and vegetables, lent her some space in his establishment to start with her activity.

Katherine’s goal for the future is to have her own establishment. She is continuously thinking to expand her business and this is why she wants to inject some capital for the first time. She came to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and requested a credikiva with which she will buy home accessories, stationery and accessories for women, which are the products that have the best inventory turnover and will make of her credikiva the best investment option.

Katherine de 32 años de edad vive con su cónyuge y sus 2 hijas en las edades de 2 y 8 años, en el municipio de Malambo, área metropolitana de la ciudad. Allí se dedica a vender mercancía variada, que distribuye en una clientela que ha ido construyendo hace más de un año, cuando su cuñado que vende frutas y verduras le dio un espacio en su local, para que Katherine iniciara su actividad. Su meta mas adelante es tener un punto fijo propio y sus sueños de crecimiento no se detienen, por eso agrega capital de crédito a su negocio por primera vez, acudiendo a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, donde se acercó a solicitar un credikiva al cual está aplicando; con el comprara accesorios domésticos útiles de papelería y artículos femeninos, que son los productos que mas rotan rápidamente y que hará de su credikiva su mejor inversión.
