Manuel Antonio's story

Manuel, 58 years old, is a hard-working man whose father taught him to work from childhood. With his sibling, he woke up in the early morning to help his father with the work of butchering pigs and cows. His father taught him a lot in this business and constantly put him to do the calculations in reference to the profits that they should receive from their work.

Manuel helped his father in his business until the age of 13 and then he decided to work selling fish. Later he moved to Barranquilla and, being in the city, he began to sell mullet rice, work that he did for 11 years and had to leave due to health problems. He again took up selling fresh fish and since then has covered the household necessities with this business.

Currently he needs to improve aspects of his business and he asked for a Kiva loan to purchase a freezer and an assortment of fish: bocachico, four-eyed, mullet, sea bream, catfish, prochilos, etc.

Support him in his loan with which he will guarantee better storage of his products and good sales.
