A loan of $600 helped to buy home accessories, stationery and accessories for women.


Katherine Del Carmen's story

Katherine, 32, lives with her partner and two daughters aged 2 and 8 in the municipality of Malambo, part of the city’s [Barranquilla] metropolitan area. She sells varied goods to a customer base she has built for over a year, when her brother-in-law, who sells fruits and vegetables, lent her some space in his establishment to start with her activity.

Katherine’s goal for the future is to have her own establishment. She is continuously thinking to expand her business and this is why she wants to inject some capital for the first time. She came to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and requested a credikiva with which she will buy home accessories, stationery and accessories for women, which are the products that have the best inventory turnover and will make of her credikiva the best investment option.
