Melbis Sarela's story

Melbis is an enterprising woman, 42 years of age, who lives in the city of Barranquilla with her husband and two children. She has an automobile service business. Melbis started this business about five years ago with her husband. He handles the technical part and she the administrative. They desire to get ahead and to be able to offer the children a better quality of life. She provides services on a daily basis to people in the sector, with payment in cash. Due to questions of health and regulations of the federal government due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she had to suspend work and her income diminished considerably.

Now she is applying for her first Kiva loan with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase working capital for the business, and to buy auto parts such as shock absorbers, retainers, tires, oil, packaging, batteries, etc. to be able to resume her work and increase sales and profits. Support her loan for her business.
