Kelly Josefa's story

Kelly Josepha is a 35-year old woman who runs a small business. She lives in the town of Cartagena with her husband and children. She started her stationery and variety store business when she participated in a competition for small business owners and won some display cabinets and working capital. Her job has generated very good results and excellent profits. This entrepreneur has managed to expand the range of products she offers including piñatas, stationery, hair products, colognes etc. Kelly's main customers are friends, neighbours, passers by, and referrals. She serves in the store every day and provides excellent service and quality products.

Because of the pandemic, sales and income have been affected. Kelly is seeking to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and is now applying for a loan with Kiva, her first financial arrangement with the Santo Domingo Foundation. She plans to use the money to buy light bulbs, candles, tablecloths, notebooks, pencils, ballpens, accessories etc.

Kelly needs an injection of capital to allow her to strengthen her business plan and in this way earn a greater profit so she can provide her family with a better standard of living. Help her with this loan; her business will be a success.
