Rocio Del Carmen's story

Rocío, 34, is a woman who due to the limited work opportunities, started her business selling drinks in the city center of Cartagena de Indias. She lives with her partner and her two children, 7 and 5 years old, and she has become a financial aid to her spouse.

Rocío serves visitors and local merchants daily, who demand carbonated drinks, water, and national beers. Her sales are generated in cash and in the same way she makes her purchases from distributing trucks.

She is currently arranging her first Kiva loan to the purchase chairs and tables to improve the service.

Support her in his loan with which she hopes to increase the consumption of her establishment.
