Sandra Patricia's story

Sandra, 42, is an enterprising resident of the municipality of Candelaria, Atlántico. She sells corn buns wholesale and has more than 10 years of experience in this work. She sells and distributes her products to stores, mini-markets, and restaurants.

She lives in her family home with her husband and two children. At a young age she learned from her brothers and friends how to prepare corn buns, a tradition and business she inherited from her parents, who taught her also other cooking techniques, which is why her buns are well known in the municipality.

The pandemic affected sales and her income, but thanks to the economic reactivation, sales have started to increase, which is why she is looking to mitigate the effects of Covid-19 by requesting a Kiva loan, her first one from Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in buying two electric mills and pots to use for the preparation of buns.

Support her on this business loan, it will be a success.
