A loan helped to buy sports shoes, shirts, dresses for women and jeans among other goods in order to meet the demand in the year-end season.


Diana Elena's story

Diana is a 36 year old woman living in a neighbourhood in the city of Barranquilla. She lives with her partner and her 6-year-old daughter, and works buying and selling various merchandise: underwear, shirts, cosmetics, perfumes, blouses, T-shirts, sports and formal shoes, jeans, small appliances (blenders, fans).

She has at least 12 years of experience in this trade, and her customers are mostly neighbours or residents of nearby neighbourhoods.

She asked the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation for a loan to buy sports shoes, shirts, women's dresses and jeans among other goods in order to meet the demand in the year-end season, when her orders increase.

Please support her with this loan.
