Luis Fernando's story

Luis is a 60-year-old microentrepreneur. He is a resident of the municipality of Soledad, where he lives with his wife and their two children and where he also owns a tailoring business.

Luis Fernando started this business approximately 8 years ago because of the lack of job opportunities and with the desire of moving his family forward and to be able to give them a better quality of life. With the passing of time, he has gained a reputation in the area as a responsible, hardworking, and highly disciplined person. He offers his services on a daily basis and his main customers are his neighbors, nearby people, and contracts with businesses. Payments are by cash and on credit.

At this time, his activity is suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic due to safety and health issues. For this reason, he is transacting his first Kiva funded loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase working capital and to buy raw materials such as fabrics, thread, pins, buttons, among others, so he can restart his work and boost the number of sales and increase his profits.
