Fany Yohana's story

Fany Yohana, age 25, is a young micro-entrepreneur. She is single and lives with her family in the city of Cartagena.

She began her business selling assorted merchandise due to the need to generate income to contribute to the support of her household. This work has generated very good results and excellent profitability. This entrepreneur offers products such as colognes, creams, lotions, and make-up. Seeing the quantity of orders and sales that she had, she expanded her range of products, increasing her inventory with clothing and food products such as chocolates and sweets. Given this, she decided to organize a space in her house to sell her items. Her principal clients are friends, neighbors, passers-by, and referrals, to whom she attends every day, offering excellent service and quality products.

Due to the pandemic, her sales were affected, and with that, her income. She seeks to mitigate the impact of Covid-19, and now she is applying for a Kiva loan, her first financing from the Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in the purchase of clothing, cologne, body creams, sweets, etc.

Fany needs an injection of capital that will permit her to strengthen her business and so obtain greater profits, to give her family a better quality of life. Support her business loan; it will be a success.
