Giovanna Andreina's story

Giovanna is an enterprising 30-year-old woman who resides in the city of Cartagena de Indias, where she has owned a restaurant business for approximately 3 years. Giovanna started this business to help improve her standard of living and that of her family. She offers her traditional dishes every day with cash sales. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she had to suspend her work and her income plummeted. Currently, she is seeking her first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo to increase her working capital, boost her business's residential sales, and buy supplies such as rice, meats, oil, etc. to increase her sales and generate greater income. Support her with a loan for her business.
