Miladys's story

Miladys is an enterprising, 55-year-old woman. She resides in the city of Barranquilla, where she owns a beauty salon as her business. Miladys started this business about 10 years ago, a job that she started out of a desire to improve her and her family's quality of life and to get ahead.

This woman currently offers her products on a daily basis to her neighbors, family, and people nearby, to whom she offers payment by cash or credit. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, she had to suspend her work due to questions of security and health. Her income diminished drastically, and she has been very economically affected.

She is currently requesting her first CrediKiva from the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation to increase her working capital and to buy creams, keratin, hair dye, and other items, in order to reach a larger number of clients and increase the number of sales. Support her in her business loan.
