Martha Luz's story

Marth Luz is an enterprising small business owner. She is a resident of the city of Baranquilla. She has a business of selling prepared foods for all types of events. She has 10 years of experience. Her business idea arose out of the need to generate income to help cover her family and personal expenses. Her customers are businesses and event meeting locations. Her goal is to have a business location since she now runs her business from her home.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she had to suspend her work, and her income reduced drastically for health reasons. She is currently arranging her first Kiva loan, through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to invest in the purchase of merchandise, such as raw materials for the preparation of appetizers, and supplies to be able to maintain biosafety standards, such as gels, thermometers, gloves, alcohol, and anti-fluid uniforms. Support her with a loan for her business.
