Carlos Enrique
Carlos, 54, lives in south Barranquilla with his wife and five grown children. As a young man, he learned the art of photography with his friends and received training that helped him perfect his skills until photography became his main source of income. He has two locations in different neighborhoods, where he also offers scanning service.

His goal is to make his photography studios known throughout the area and add new technology and services. He lacks the working capital to quickly achieve this goal. He is applying to Fundación Mario Santo Domingo for his first Kiva loan to increase capital so that he can purchase a copy machine and supplies for his studios.

Carlos de 54 años de edad habita al sur de la ciudad de Barranquilla con su cónyuge y tiene 5 hijos adultos. En su juventud aprendió con amigos el arte de la fotografía y poco a poco recibió capacitación técnica, que le permitió perfeccionar su actividad hasta convertirla en la generadora de ingresos más importante, pues cuenta con dos puntos de servicios en diferentes barrios a los cuales les ha adicionado el servicio de escaner. Su meta es convertir sus estudios fotográficos en espacios reconocidos en su zona de aceso y agregarle tecnología y nuevos servicios, pero su capital de trabajo no es suficiente para lograr rápidamente este propósito. Hoy acude a la Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, con el fin de lograr su primer financiamiento mediante Kiva, pues necesita ampliar su capital para comprar una fotocopiadora e insumos de fotocopiaje y agregar a sus instalaciones este servicio.
