A loan helped to invest in the purchase of fabrics, threads, buttons, runners, needles, etc.


Carmen Maria's story

Carmen is a 53-year-old micro-entrepreneur, residing in the city of Cartagena, and she has had a clothing workshop for 20 years. Her business began out of the need to generate income to get ahead and to get her family ahead. She started doing small jobs for neighbors, and became known in the sector. Due to the pandemic, her sales were affected as well as her income. Thanks to the economic reactivation her sales are on the rise, which is why she seeks to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and is currently applying to a credikiva. The first financing that she will make is to the Santo Domingo Foundation, to invest in the purchase of fabrics, threads, buttons, runners, needles, etc. Support her in her credit for her business; it will be a success.
