Helga Patricia's story

Helga Patricia is a 49-year-old micro-entrepreneur. She lives in Barranquilla.

Helga Patricia has a framing shop. She has over ten years of experience operating in this sector. She provides everything related to frames and glass.

Helga Patricia’s customers are neighbors, family members and customers in Barranquilla. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic that occurred worldwide, her level of work declined due to biosafety issues. She resorted to door-to-door sales on the days she could go out, but it was not the same inasmuch as her cash flow decreased dramatically.

Helga Patricia is currently arranging for her first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo in order to purchase items such as frames, wood, glass and to cover general expenses. Please support her in her business.
