Maria's story

Maria is a 62-year-old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena and has had as a business selling products from catalogs, and providing hair-styling services, manicures and pedicures in her house for over 20 years.

Her business was born of the necessity to generate income to get her family ahead and help her spouse. She was getting training little by little, taking courses thanks to a friend who gave her information about the places and dates. She organized it and attended to gain the necessary knowledge and, so, to offer her customers better service.

María has as a goal to increase her sales and have more customers, so she is applying for her first Kiva loan, through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which she will invest in the purchase of nail polish, body creams, perfumes, and accessories. Support her.
