Álvaro Enrique's story

Álvaro Enrique, age 41, is a small entrepreneur who resides in the city of Barranquilla with his wife and two children. He has a business of installing marble kitchens. Álvaro Enrique came up with the idea to start his business five years ago. His clients include neighbors, friends, referrals, and construction companies. He has one permanent employee, so his business contributes to the generation of employment and income for that individual’s family.

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, his level of work dropped because of biosecurity issues. As a result, his income decreased drastically. Álvaro Enrique is requesting his first Kiva loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo so that he can invest in supplies, such as stone and marble. Please support his business loan.
