Jose Ángel's story

Jose Ángel, 57, is a small businessman who lives in the city of Cartagena. Here, he has a stationery and photocopying business where he also sells transcription and printing services. He has over three years of experience in this work. The idea for the business came up because his wife works by selling a variety of merchandise door to door so they started to look for a shop where they could open a stationary and photocopying service with display cabinets to hold products, which is another source of income for them.

His customers are neighbors, acquaintances, and other individuals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to close his business for health safety reasons and his income was drastically affected. He is currently seeking his first loan with Kiva through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in buying stationery supplies in addition to new merchandise such as shoes, blouses, and more. Support him with this business loan.
