Arlys Gray's story

Arlys is an enterprising 42-year-old woman. She is a resident of the city of Barranquilla, a place where she lives with her spouse and where she also has a business of making clothing. Arlys Gray started this business more than two years ago because of a lack of job opportunities and her desire to provide for her family and give them a better quality of life. Over time, she has earned a reputation in the area for being a responsible, hard-working, and very disciplined person. She offers her services daily to her main customers, who are her neighbors as well as people from the surrounding areas, and through contracts with businesses, accepting cash payments and credit.

Her business is suspended right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, due to sanitation and health issues. For that reason, she is arranging her first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo, through the Atlántico Responde plan, to be able to increase her working capital for the purchase of raw materials, such as fabrics, threads, pins, buttons, etc., in order to reactivate her business and increase her sales and her profits. Support her with a loan for her business.
