Martha Ramona's story

Martha Ramona García, 60, owns “Confecciones Marynaty,” a business where she manufactures all kinds of clothing, especially menswear, although she also works on crafts and lingerie.

Her activity is a product of family tradition. She used to work for a firm where she strengthened her knowledge and later decided to start her own business because she couldn’t find employment due to her age. This is how she took on this task in order to support the education of her three children who are currently between the ages of 24 and 35. Her dream is to set up her business in a locale separate from her house with all the comforts that will facilitate its growth and sustainability.

She is asking for her first financing from Fundación Mario Santo Domingo through a Kiva loan to buy fabric, thread, foam, elastic, cotton and appliqués because the Barranquilla Carnivals are approaching and she wants to be able to respond to the season’s demand.
