Kelly Johana's story

Kelly is 33 and lives in the municipality of Malambo with her husband and their two children who are 11 and 2 years old.

Kelly started her own business a year ago after having worked as an assistant accountant with an alcohol drinks business where she learned about the profitability of these products. She therefore took her savings and the pay-off from her employer to invest in her business.

The success of the business was not long in coming and she immediately managed to reach the targets set and was able to reinvest the capital.

She is currently applying for her first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which she will buy domestic and foreign beers as well as whisky and rum in order to improve her stock variety and achieve higher sales.

Kelly’s goal is to improve her family’s quality of life and consolidate the business as a sales leader in the alcoholic drinks sector.
