Cynthia Soair's story

Cynthia Soair, 28, lives in the city of Cartagena de Indias where she has a business selling beauty products and offering hair salon services. She started the business two years ago approximately after losing her job. She used her severance pay to start the business.

She offers her products daily to her main customers who are neighbors, people living in the area, passersby and others, selling on a cash or credit basis. Because of government regulations and safety issues she had to suspend her business activity due to the Covid-19 pandemic and her income declined considerably.

Currently she is applying for her first CrediKiva loan through the Santo Domingo Foundation thanks to the Atlantico Responde program in order to increase her work capital and buy supplies such as cosmetics, hair color, creams and colognes, etc. Her aim is to increase sales and profit.

Please support her business loan.
