Katy Del Rosario's story

Katy, 44, is a small businesswoman who lives in the city of Barranquilla. She makes a living organizing events, especially weddings, with more than 15 years of experience in this work. She came up with the idea because she liked to decorate from a young age. In fact, she was in charge of organizing all the family parties and special events.

At the company she worked for, she was also the one who organized everything related to Christmas and birthdays. When she lost her job, however, friends and people who knew about her and started to seek her out for different events, so Kathy saw the opportunity and decided to start the business.

Kathy provides event organization services, and accepts cash and credit payments. She is currently managing her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to pay rent and some suppliers. Her goal is to increase the number of sales and profits for the business. Support her business loan.
