Madys Del Carmen's story

Madys Del Carmen is an enterprising micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena. Her business provides the service of tourism packages. Madys Del Carmen started the business approximately one year ago. The idea came from her work in the tourism sector, where she sold tourist plans. During that time, she specialized in sales such as on-line platforms and customer service. With her knowledge and using her savings, she decided to start her business.

The company now has three employees, contributing to generation of employment and income for their families. It is a place known in the city for good service, for Colombians and foreigners. Her clients are tourists and individuals. Her business activity declined due to the Covid-19 pandemic, for health reasons. Her production and profits decreased.

Therefore she is applying for her first Kiva loan with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to cover business obligations such as payment of rent and public services. Support her business loan.
