Maibet Isabel's story

Maibet Isabel is an enterprising micro-businesswoman. She is a 46-year-old resident of the city of Barranquilla. She has a business selling snacks like empanaditas, deditos and meatballs. She has had it for 10 years. Maibet Isabel has always had an enterprising spirit. She likes to work independently; that was the reason she was motivated to start her own business, thanks to her mother's support. She was the one who taught her this work. Her customers are passersby, friend and neighbors. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, things were difficult and her income went down drastically for public health reasons. Now she is taking out her first Kiva loan with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in buying trays, flour, meat, chicken, yucca and vegetables. Support her in her business loan.
