Maribel's story

Maribel is a 50-year-old small entrepreneur and a resident of the city of Barranquilla. She has a business of selling general merchandise such as clothes (for women, men, and children), crèmes, body splash, and other products. Maribel has more than eight years of experience in this business. In addition to managing this business, she works at a company where she performs various roles. Her customers include friends, neighbors, relatives, referrals, and co-workers.

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, her work level and cash flow were drastically reduced because of biosafety issues. Maribel is applying for her first Kiva loan from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She plans to invest in the purchase of merchandise such as shirts, trousers, blouses, and lotions so that she can expand her offering of products. Please support her business loan.
