Sandra Milena's story

Sandra Milena is 39 years old and lives with her husband and daughter in the city of Cartagena. She started her store 5 years ago, motivated to search out other income opportunities for her family. Her husband supports her in this work. She sells supplies and groceries. Her main customers are neighbors, friends, family members, referrals, and people passing through the neighborhood.

Currently she is applying for a CrediKiva, the first loan that she has taken out with the Santo Domingo Foundation, to invest in the purchase of rice, oil, sugar, canned goods, deli meat, cleaning products, and personal hygiene products.

Sandra Milena wants to increase her inventory to generate more income. Support her in this loan, and it will be a success.
