Luisa Fernanda's story

Luisa Fernanda is a 20-year-old small entrepreneur who lives with her family in the city of Cartagena. This young woman inherited her father’s store and invested her own capital into the business that offers basic household goods such as provisions, groceries, dishes, dairy products, red meats, snack foods, beverages, and other items. Luisa has more than two years of experience. Because of her dedication, organization, and effort, her business is profitable and she has the satisfaction of providing excellent service.

At the start of the pandemic, her revenue took a slight hit because of the restrictions that mandated that she close early, which also limited her household earnings. Now that economic activity has restarted within the last few months, everything has returned to normal and she will be able to recover. Luisa wants to increase her inventory to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and to increase demand. At the moment, she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first form of financing through Fundación Santo Domingo. She will invest in the purchase of groceries, dishes, medicines, dairy products, red meats, snack foods, and beverages so that she can expand her current location. Luisa wants to increase her inventory of products by adding innovative merchandise to make her business more attractive to new customers. This will help her achieve greater profitability and allow her to improve her quality of life. Please support her loan so that she can be a success.
