A loan helped to expand her working capital to buy rice, oil, grains, meat, and other items, and to maintain her freezer.


Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina, 42, is an enterprising woman. She lives in the city of Cartagena de Indias, where she has a business selling lunch.

Luz started this business about three years ago on her own initiative and, in addition, she has always loved the culinary arts, and for the lack of job opportunities and the desire to give her family a better quality of life. She offers her services daily to her main customers, who are her neighbors and passersby in the area.

At the moment she's applying for her first Kiva loan from Fundación Santo Domingo to expand her working capital to buy rice, oil, grains, meat, and other items, and to maintain her current freezer so she can expand her sales and profits.

Support her in her business loan.
