Alvaro Antonio's story

Alvaro is a 61-year-old micro-entrepreneur, a resident of the city of Barranquilla where he lives with his spouse and where, in addition, he has a business selling shoes.

Alvaro Antonio began this business approximately 10 years ago after having gotten all the knowledge from his father who worked at this business his whole life. He offers his services daily to his primary customers who are passersby, neighbors, and people near the area, with cash payments and on credit.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to suspend his business due to health reasons and the measures of the national government.

Currently, he is applying for his first Kiva loan, with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to be able to increase the working capital of his business and to purchase new shoes and sandals to be able to increase his level of sales and profits of his business. Support him in his business loan.
