Paola Patricia's story

Paola Patricia is a 37 year old micro entrepreneur. She lives in Barranquilla with her husband and daughter, who is in middle school.

Paola has a business selling general merchandise, such as watches, clothing items, accessories, and perfumes, among other things. She started her business approximately 18 months ago. Her business idea arose when she was younger and sold things to her family. With the help of her husband she bought merchandise in larger quantities, and continued to grow. She makes both cash and credit sales. Her customers are individuals from different areas in Atlántico, Magdalena and Bolívar, as well as neighbors, friends and referrals.

Currently Paola's business is declining due to the Covid-19 pandemic and health conditions. Her production diminished as did her profits. For that reason she is seeking her first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to buy antibacterial gel, alcohol, and face masks, in addition to colognes, perfumes, accessories, and personalized items. Support her with this business loan.
