Sandy Margarita's story

Sandy is a 26-year-old micro-entrepreneur, resident of the city of Cartagena. For two years, she's owned a drugstore in a leased space located in one of the district's main roads. This business was born out of the need to generate income independently, and given her training received as a pharmacy technician.

Upon completion of her studies, she worked in a drugstore where she made contacts with suppliers and learned the management of this business. With her savings and her partner's support, she decided to open her own business to generate income independently. She saw the opportunity as she lives in an area with a high flow of people and no business competition, so they decided to open up the store and it's been going well.

Sandy joined the Cartagena Responde initiative in order to mitigate the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic and promote the economic revival, and is applying for a Kiva loan through Fundación Santo Domingo to invest in the purchase of alcohol, antibacterial gel, cold medications and more. Support her with her loan. It will be successful.
