Colombia
Barranquilla, Colombia / Grocery Store

A loan of $575 helped to purchase sweets, cold cuts and cheese, and also to purchase spare parts and pay for labor in order to do maintenance on her freezer.


Ingrid's story

With her previous loan, Ingrid bought cold cuts and cheese. She stocked up and therefore increased her sales. Ever since she obtained her loan, she has been able to bring home increased earnings and thus she has improved her well-being. She's currently applying for her second loan which she'll use to purchase sweets, cold cuts and cheese. She plans to make an impact on her customers during Christmas season, since these types of food are the ones that families most often partake of on the holidays. In addition, with this loan she'll also purchase spare parts and pay for labor, because her freezer is in need of preventive maintenance. She tells her Kiva lenders: "Thank you for giving me support so I can grow and therefore support my family".
