Sugenis Maria's story

Sugenis Maria is a small enterprising businesswoman,45 years old and a resident of Cartagena. She owns a business sewing clothes and has worked in this activity for approximately 6 years. Her business idea was born thanks to the studies she did about specialized activities in design. Later, she worked in this profession at a company where she practiced everything she learned. With the money she earned, she saved until she bought her own machines, and with her family's support she has moved her business ahead. Her customers are neighbors, friends, referred people and persons of her area.
Sugenis Maria's goal is to have more inventory of products. Because of the Covid 19 pandemic, she had to stop her work and her income decreased drastically due to safety issues. Currently, she is applying to her first Credikiva with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in work capital and inventory. Support her with her business loan.
