A loan helped to buy cheese and cookies to sell.

Hilba's story

Hilba is an enterprising woman who is 58 years old and a resident of the city of Cartagena de Indias. She has a business of selling cheese and cookies, both in small and bulk amounts. Hilba started this business approximately three years ago due to a lack of job opportunities and because she needed to provide a better quality of life for her family. She offers her services every day. Her main customers are neighboring stores and passersby through the area.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she had to suspend her business activities because of national government mandates and health issues. Hilba is currently applying for her first Kiva loan through Fundación Santo Domingo in order to increase her operating capital. She will buy cheese and cookies so that she can increase her sales and her profits. Please support her business loan.
