A loan helped to increase her working capital and buy clothes, paint, stickers, fabric, among others.


Kerlis Patricia's story

Kerlis Patricia is an enterprising woman of 38 years old. She lives in the city of Barranquilla, where she has a business selling clothes and prints.

Kerlis started this business around 2 years ago. Her goal was to move forward, and also to give a better quality of life to her family.

She earned recognition for being a responsible and very committed person with her activity. She offers her products daily to her neighbors in the area. She gets paid up front and on credit.

Due to COVID-19, for health and security concerns, she had to stop her activity. Therefore, her business decreased.

She is now requesting her first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo to increase her working capital and buy clothes, paint, stickers, fabric, among others. She needs these items to increase her sales and profit.

Support her in this loan for her business!
