Johanis Isabel
Johanis, 27, lives in the town of Soledad with her one-year-old child and her husband. She makes a living in sales. She sells women's and men's clothing and footwear that she gets in the cities of Medellín and Bogotá, where they make delicate products with incomparable finishing touches.

She started her business in 2007 because her father gave her the money to set up. Her aunt in Medellín helped her with her experience locating the best providers and with submitting her orders.

Today Johanis has a sales locale in the downtown of her city and she stocks small neighborhood stores and customers. She accepts credit or cash.

Her goal is to increase her customers and her sales, so she's requesting a Kiva loan, her first financing from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it she'll buy men's and women's shoes and t-shirts to fill pre-sale orders.

Johanis dreams of prosperity with her husband and for her family, such as having her own house. This is why they work every day to be able to save the money to realize their dreams.
