Dubya
In her business, Dubys offers fast foods, lunches, and fried foods in general, in a very traditional neighborhood of the city of Barranquilla, where she lives with her husband and their four children, ages 6 to 21 years old. Her experience dates from 22 years ago, when, because of the necessity of generating income in her home, at 14 years old had to assume the responsibility of generating the possibility of improving her home.

Because of that, with her husband she began to taking advantage of her potential in preparing foods to make a new source of income. Now, she makes her sales in cash from 6:30 until 2:00 in the afternoon every day. Her goal further on is to have her own store, although her greatest challenge is increasing her income to aspire to the national government’s housing subsidy.

Currently, she is applying for a Kiva loan, the second loan requested from the Mario Santo Domingo foundation, by means of which she will purchase provisions like rice, oil, flours, and other nonperishable supplies in order for the inventory to exist. With the previous loan from this organization, she was able to increase her business, offering much more effective service and thus gather funds to purchase her home since currently she rents.
