Rina Marcela's story

Rina, 20, is a small-businesswoman who lives in the city of Cartagena. She's had a small dressmaking workshop for more than a year. She went into this business because she wanted to get ahead, and also generate income to pay for her education. She inherited the workshop from her mother, who works with her and taught her the art of dressmaking. Her mother had a lot of experience in this area, and they both know many neighbors, so they started to share the work. For the future, Rina's goal is to have a bigger workshop.

At this time, Rina is requesting her first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to buy fabric, thread, buttons, needles, and zippers. This way, she can increase her sales and her profits. Support her with this loan for her business!
