Paulina De Jesus's story

Paulina De Jesus is a 64-year-old microentrepreneur. She is married and lives in the city of Cartagena. This entrepreneur started her clothing business in order to generate income for her home. Paulina, with dedication and effort, learned her art empirically, then took a course and worked in a company as a seamstress. She gained enough experience to become independent 10 years ago. She offers her tailoring services and makes different garments such as unisex clothing, children's clothing, dresses, casual clothing, school uniforms, and also provides sewing lessons.

This business has been very profitable for this microentrepreneur, but due to the pandemic her income was affected. She needs to strengthen her business plan as the economy restarts. She also needs to improve and expand her stock of raw materials, which is why she is currently applying for a Kiva loan. This is her first financing through the Santo Domingo Foundation. It will be used to invest in the purchase of fabrics, interfacing, buttons, zippers, brooches, needles, etc. Paulina needs an injection of capital to strengthen her business, increase her profits, and improve her family's quality of life. Support her on her business loan.
