Emilia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy shoes and bags of different designs.
Emilia, 45, has been dedicated to commercial work for ten years when a friend suggested to her to travel to Bucaramanga, a beautiful city in Santander where there are experts in the fabrication of bags and leather shoes and there she bought items to sell in Barranquilla since there is a large demand. It was thus she started her business and today her dream of prosperity does not stop. She plans in the future to open a store where she can offer these items. But her greatest obstacle is achieving customer loyalty with good prices and quality. Currently, she is applying for a CrediKiva, the first loan she has made with Fundacion Mario Santo Domingo, through which she will buy shoes and bags of different designs and with which she will increase her sales and therefore her profits making her CrediKiva a successful investment.
