Ingrid Del Carmen's story

Ingrid Del Carmen, age 47, is a micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena. Her business is a fast food stall. She has more than six years' experience in this work. She offers fast food, breakfasts, and lunches. Her business idea arose from the lack of job opportunities and the need to generate income to cover household expenses. Ingrid Del Carmen's clients are neighbors, people from the area, referrals, and family.

Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, her business declined due to bio-security reasons, and her cash flow dropped drastically. For this reason, she joined the "Cartagena Responde" program to request her first Kiva loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo to invest in working capital, and to increase her inventory of beverages and food. Support her business loan.
