Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is a young entrepreneur, 20 years old, a resident of the city of Cartagena de Indias, where he lives with his parents. There, he has a business selling various groceries and fried foods.

Carlos Alberto has always enjoyed preparing food and with some of his savings that he had, he decided to start this business, with which he has been able to get ahead. He has been able to pay for his education and help his parents with the household expenses.

The borrower began this business approximately 2 years ago and, with it, has been able to earn a good reputation in the sector as a responsible and hard-working young man. The young man offers his services daily to his primary customers, who are his neighbors and people near the sector with payment in cash and on credit.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic reasons, he had to suspend his business due to health reasons and the dictates of the national government. Currently, he is applying for his first Kiva loan, with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to be able to increase his working capital and purchase supplies such as beef, pork, chicken, groceries, and more, to be able to increase the number of sales and profits. Support him in his business loan.
