Vilma Luz's story

Vilma Luz is a 35-year-old microentrepreneur, a resident of the municipality of Juan de Acosta, where she lives with her spouse. She has had a business for 7 months making and selling fast food such as hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken, pizza, desgranados, etc. Her business idea came up because her family has always worked at this business. After a time, she decided to invest in the purchase of the necessary supplies to get the business ahead. This commercial activity has allowed the microentrepreneur to have financial stability for herself and her family.

But, due to the COVID-19 pandemic which came up at a global level, her work level dropped due to biosafety issues and her income diminished drastically. For this reason, she joined the Atlántico Responde program to ask for her first Kiva loan, through Fundación Santo Domingo, with the objective of investing in the purchase of meat, hamburger and hotdog buns, disposable glasses and silverware and necessary supplies to make the fast food. Support her in her business loan.
