Milfred Marinis's story

Milfred is an entrepreneurial 53-year-old woman. She lives in Barranquilla, where she owns a business selling products made from steel and costume jewelry. Milfred Marinis began this business ten years ago because of a desire to move forward and to improve the quality of life of her family. She sells her products daily and her main customers pay in cash or buy on credit. Currently she is requesting her first loan via Kiva's field partner Fundación Santo Domingo in order to increase working capital to buy costume jewelry made from steel, such as earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, charms, and pins, amongst other items. The goal is to offer a greater quantity of products and increase sales and income for her business. The business has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, because she had to close the business for health and safety reasons. Support her in this loan for her business.
