Sindi Paola's story

Sindi Paola is a 31-year-old microbusinesswoman, a resident of the city of Barranquilla, where she lives with her spouse and her two children. She sells merchandise, appliances, magazines, and sweets, and rents chairs and tables for events. Sindi Paola started this business approximately 9 years ago. Her business idea came up when she was a young woman and she sold with her mother, who had always sold merchandise, and from there she learned until she decided to start her own business. She offers products for cash and on credit to her customers, who are family, referrals, neighbors, friends. Currently, her economic activity has deteriorated due to the Covid-19 pandemic because of health concerns, and therefore her production decreased and she was not seeing a profit. Because of that, she is taking out her first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo in order to invest in low-priced appliances, irons, blenders, 14-inch televisions, pressure cookers, orders, and products such as face masks and alcohol. Help her with her loan for her business.
