Angel Rafael's story

Angel, 33, is a micro-entrepreneur. He lives in Cartagena de Indias, where he also has a variety store and paper goods business.

Angel Rafael started this business about three years ago because of the lack of job opportunities. He invested his savings to start his business. He has earned recognition in the area for being a hardworking and responsible person in his work.

He had to stop working during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic because of sanitation and health, and his income declined considerably.

Currently he's applying for his first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase his working capital and to buy materials like paper goods, pens and pencils, staplers, notions, and other items so he can expand his sales and profits.

Help him with his business loan.
