Marilyn Marleny's story

Marilyn Marleny is a businesswoman who resides in the city of Barranquilla. For more than five years, she has been organizing conventions and commercial events, as well as recreational and leisure activities. She was employed for 10 years at companies in the entertainment and recreation sectors. Marilyn Marleny started her business at home with a small amount of capital. She made decorations and set pieces for special events. Over time, she became successful due to the quality and timeliness of her services. Thanks to her tenacity and perseverance, her business has reached the level where it is today. Her business has two permanent employees and has also created more than five indirect jobs. Marilyn Marleny has maintained a stable financial situation because her business is located in the San Isidro neighborhood of Barranquila.

Like most companies in the services sector, her business has been impacted by COVID-19 since public gatherings have been limited or restricted altogether. As a result, she practically has no revenue. For this reason, Marilyn Marleny joined the program “Barraquilla Responds” and requested her first Kiva loan through Fundación Santo Domingo. The proceeds will be used to pay the invoices from her suppliers and to buy a large quantity of supplies such as iron, aluminum, welding materials, and equipment for her work. Please support her business loan.
