Gisella Patricia's story
Gisella is 34 years old and is an independent worker. She has a 7 year old child and she lives with her partner in a neighbourhood south of Barranquilla. Since she was a child she got to know the business of selling beers and soft drinks as her family earned a living in this activity and she helped to sell. Her parents decided to give her the business in 2005 because of health problems and she is satisfied with the results. Every day her customers come to her home to have a soft drink, this is why she always needs to have a good supply for the business and why she is applying for her first Kiva loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to buy cans of beer, fizzy drinks and juices. Gisella hopes to improve the conditions of her premises and to have her own home.
