Jorge Luis's story

Jorge Luis is a 28-year-old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena with his wife and son.

He started his own business, a store, because it's a family tradition. This undertaking has been an excellent opportunity to grow and bring in extra income.

This entrepreneur offers products for the household in his store, such as candy, soft drinks, bottled juices, root vegetables, other vegetables, dairy products, meat, etc.

Starting at 5 a.m., he tends to customers until 6 p.m. Jorge gets up everyday hoping to be able to improve the wellbeing of his family. For that reason he works hard to reach that goal.

He hopes to increase his inventory and thus his sales, so he is currently applying for a Kiva loan, the first funding he's gotten from the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation.

He will invest the funds in the purchase of flours, sacks of rice, oils, soft drinks, grains, root vegetables, etc.

Because of the pandemic, his sales increased from the big demand. He also included home service and sales on social networks in his services for customers. This has generated an increase in his sales and excellent profits.

His business goal is to increase his working capital in order to increase sales and improve his quality of life. Support him with his business loan. It will be successful.
