Melisa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to invest in products to increase her inventory: artificially flavored popsicles and packaging.

Melisa's story

Melissa is a 29 year old woman who lives in Barranquilla who has started a business distributing soft drinks and packaging. She lives with her husband and her six year old son who she loves with all her heart. She was an employee with private companies for years. After the birth of her son she wanted to be economically independent and be in the house more.

She believed in her abilities and started her distribution service which today is well-known by hundreds of itinerant vendors who sell these products highly consumed on the coast. Her income is good and at this time she is applying for her first loan from Kiva to invest in products to increase her inventory: artificial flavored popsicles and packaging. Support her with her business loan so she can continue to progress.
