Gina Paola's story

Gina Paola is a 35 year old micro-entrepreneur, she lives in the city of Barranquilla with her spouse and two children. She has a business selling fast food where she offers burgers, hot dogs, arepas, potato and wiener snacks, pizzas. Gina Paola started this business approximately 6 years ago with her own capital and her spouse's help. Her customers are neighbors of the area, friends, referrals and passerby.
Currently, her activity went down because of the Covid19 pandemic due to sanitary reasons and as a result her production went down and her income as well. This is why she is working on getting her first Kiva loan with Fundacion Mario Santo Domingo to buy flour at wholesale, cheese, butter, salsas, make a digital menu, deli, potatoes, chicken, meat. Support her with a loan for her business.
