Benjamin's story

Benjamin, age 49, is a micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Barranquilla with his wife and children. He has a business selling fruits and vegetables.

Benjamin started this business approximately 22 years ago on his own initiative after the birth of his first child. He began with his small savings and has been able to establish himself in the area as a responsible and hardworking person. He offers his services daily, with payment in cash or on credit. His principal clients are stores in the neighborhood and surrounding the sector. Due to health reasons and government regulations regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, he had to suspend his business.

Now he is requesting his first Kiva loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo thanks to the program "Atlántico Responde" to increase working capital and to buy supplies such as vegetables and fruit in bulk, to increase his sales and profits from his business. Support his loan for his business.
