Samuel David's story

Samuel David is a 24 year old micro-entrepreneur and resident of Barranquilla.

In 2017 Samuel David decided to formally work in this business. Today he has many potential customers which has allowed him to grow significantly due to his sales. Now he has economic stability, increased profits and has improved his quality of living and that of his family.

He is currently applying for his first loan from Kiva with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in the purchase of thinner, paint, paint containers and chemicals to make his product. Support him with this loan for his business.
