Marcela's story

Marcela, 24, is an enterprising young woman and learned much from watching her mother, a long-time businesswoman herself and an example to Marcela of what she might do to earn a living. Marcela used to sells sweets and other snacks to her friends at school and later went on to study merchandising at Valledupar. She moved to Bogota after getting her degree and started bringing merchandise from there on visits to her mother. She eventually left her Bogota job and used her pay-out to set up a business selling party accessories, clothing, footwear, cosmetics and other general merchandise. She is partnered now and has two children, 3- and 1-years old, respectively.

Marcela is applying to Kiva for a loan, her first, that she will use to buy merchandise for resale and supplies for making hayacas and desserts. Please support her efforts to maintain her business and increase her income.
