Nubia's story

Nubia R. C. is the owner of Variedades Nuby, located in the Chiquinquirá neighborhood in the city of Cartagena de Indias. She lives with her partner and two children of 11 and 12 years of age. Nubia began her work with her husband’s help who gave her the capital from his severance pay to help her develop her potential as well as earning extra income for their home being aware of its stability. Nubia’s work has given her a lot of satisfaction because she sees how each day her income increases and how she helps meet her families’ expenses. This is her second loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation (Kiva’s field partner) and with the loan she will buy merchandize like perfumes, items in crockery shops as well as miscellaneous items that she will promote among her good customers. Her business is located in a well trafficked area which makes it very strategic for her sales. Nubia’s dream is to expand her business and to have profits to use in acquiring a home and to help her children finish their education.
