Sharyn Andrea's story

Sharyn Andrea is a 22-year old micro-entrepreneur. She lives in Cartagena, where she has a business running a tourism agency. Sharyn Andrea started the business two years ago, taking advantage of the fact that she lives in the most touristy part of Cartagena. She saw the number of tourists who came by the building she lived in, and she started contacting apartment owners and administrators and tourism operators. She offers vacation (daily) rentals and tours through social networks. Her customers are tourists from the city.

Because of issues related to the Covid 19 pandemic, health concerns and government regulations, Sharyn Andrea had to suspend her business. Because of that, her income decreased considerably.

Sharyn Andrea is currently arranging her first credikiva with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo so she can increase her working capital. Support her in her business loan.
