Jesus Maria's story

Jesus María, 66, is a small businessman who lives in the city of Barranquilla. Here, he has a business selling a variety of items in the city, including TV remotes, batteries, chargers, music, movies, and cell phone cases. He has over 10 years of experience in this work. He is separated and lives with his family.

The idea for this business came up due to the need to earn income that would help him cover household expenses and savings and to help his family rent a small store that currently serves as his business. His customers are passersby and people he knows personally. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to close his business for public safety reasons and his income decreased drastically. He is currently seeking his first loan with Kiva through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in buying monitors, cell phone cases, recorder cables, phone chargers, and batteries.
