Jeniffer's story

Jeniffer is 24 years old and lives in Barranquilla, where she has a baby supplies store. She had worked for many years in a similar store, and finally decided open her own business, selling toys, clothing, and other baby items. Her store is located on one of the main commercial streets in Barranquilla, close to an important maternity clinic in which Jeniffer’s mother works. This situation has served to find new customers among the staff and patients of the clinic. Recently, Jeniffer registered her business with the Chamber of Commerce of Barranquilla and received various benefits provided by the state for new businesses. One peculiarity of Jeniffer’s store is that it not only sells new products but also sells used gently used items and this is very profitable.

Jeniffer is applying for her first loan from Kiva, and also the first financing made from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to buy toys and baby items such as playards, baby walkers, baby carriages, clothing, footwear, bottles, and more. She hopes that this increase in products in her business will help the growth of this productive unit and be able to gain new customers for the future. Her dream is to have one of the most famous stores in the city, and with your help she can continue working towards this goal.
