Dewin de 32 años tiene una tienda en el municipio de Malambo, ubicado a 15 minutos de la ciudad de Barranquilla; allí vive con su cónyuge y su hijo de 6 años de edad, familia que es su motivación para dirigir todos sus esfuerzos de trabajo y lograr su bienestar. Dewin es un educador de profesión, que adquirió la experiencia de negocio en la casa de sus padres y él desde muy niño observó cómo ellos sacaron adelante a su familia mediante este trabajo. Por eso hace tres años recibió una liquidación y no dudó en emprender su propia aventura, que hoy está convertida en una tienda que constituye importantes ingresos para su hogar. Este negocio es administrado por su esposa en las mañanas y por él mismo en la tarde, porque trabaja en un colegio el otro medio tiempo. Su meta es apoyar su crecimiento para cada día ganar más rentabilidad y muy seguramente lo logrará, porque es un hombre de familia, muy organizado y trabajador; su credikiva es el primer financiamiento que hace a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo con el cual comprará víveres, papelería, y en general artículos de miscelánea pues desea fortalecer también, su punto de ventas como miscelánea y con ello aprovecharía el mercado ya cautivo del que goza su tienda. .
