Yesenia Liseth's story

Yesenia Liseth is a 22-year-old microentrepreneur living in the city of Barranquilla. She lives with her family. She has as a commercial activity the preparation and sale of fast and special foods (grilled stuffed arepas - bbq ribs and wings and special roasts). She has 7 months of experience in the business.

Her idea arose due to the retirement of the company where she worked due to the covid pandemic. At that time taking advantage of the situation, she decided to start her own business with a differentiated style, a dream she had had for a long time. For this she invested some saved resources and some own assets such as coolers, pots, stoves and other kitchen utensils.

Today, thanks to the economic reactivation, the clientele is increasing and she needs to obtain the resources to invest in more supplies to meet the demand. For this reason, she joined the Atlantico Responds Program to request her first loan with the Santo Domingo Foundation in order to invest in the purchase of meat, sausage, raw materials, beverages, among others, and implement biosecurity protocols. Support her loan for her business.
