A loan helped to buy wholesale boxes, ribbons and balloons.


Laura's story

Laura is a 30-year-old small business owner and resident of the city of Barranquilla. She has a corner shop business where she offers all types of party merchandise, gift sales, furniture rental and decoration services for events and banquets.

It has been operating for approximately one year and she started this business idea with the help of her husband. Her customers are neighbours in her area, passers-by, referrals and customers who she gets from social networks.

Her business is situated in a street where a large number of people pass through. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which presented itself worldwide, her business was affected because of the number of restrictions imposed by the national government. The majority of places for events and parties closed which is why she requires this current application for credit, to manage to push her business forward and invest in the purchase of wholesale boxes, ribbons and balloons.

Support her.
