Lina Maria's story

Lina Maria is 30 years old and lives in the city of Cartagena with her mother. She opened her store 3 years ago because she is motivated to seek opportunities for additional income for her family. Her mother supports her in this work. The business arose from her need to have income to be able to study.

She sells groceries, home supplies and cold beverages. Her main customers are neighbors, friends, relatives, people to whom she had been recommended and passersby in the neighborhood.

She is currently applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing from the Santo Domingo Foundation, to invest in the purchase of rice, oil, sugar, canned goods, sausages, cleaning products, personal care products, beverages, etc. Lina wants to increase her inventory to generate more income. Support her with the loan, it will be a success.
