Angelis Andrea's story

Angelis Andrea is a young student who lives with her husband and son in the city of Barranquilla. She is 19 years old and is an example of overcoming obstacles and tenacity.

This entrepreneur started her business activity from her house, due to the need to provide for her family and to pay for her technical studies. In a small area, she opened her miscellany store, where she primarily sells school supplies and stationery. She also sells variety items, treats, soft drinks, juices, and other types of beverages. Her principal clients are passers-by, friends, neighbors, and relatives. She has the support of her husband who covers the majority of family expenses. He also helps by serving customers while she attends university.

Now she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, that she will invest in the purchase of toiletries, treats, energy drinks, notebook packages, pencils, pens, etc. Her goal is to finish her studies and have her own house. She also wants her business to grow to offer her family a better quality of life. Support her business loan; it will be a success.
