Enrique's story

Enrique is 57 years old. He is the head of a family that lives in the city of Barranquilla. He worked for many years as a salaried employee for a construction company, but a reduction in employees left him without work. He spent several years looking for employment, but without success.

On the suggestion of his wife, he began to sell an assortment of deep-fried snacks from the door of their house. This business idea arose because there were no food businesses in the area. He began selling only on the weekends and holidays. He later included lunches in his offerings.

Currently, his business is open every day for lunches at midday and for fried snacks in the evening. Enrique is requesting his first Kiva loan with the objective of buying an industrial cooker, seats, tables, a sun umbrella and merchandise (perfumes, shoes, and clothing) that his wife will sell in the December season. Support him with his loan.
