Antony Jose's story

Antony Jose is a micro-entrepreneur who is 26 years old and lives in Cartagena with his family. For the past two years, he has run a small ice cream shop. He started his business because he needed a means of generating an income to help his mother and to be able to get ahead. He started smelling small cones and today, he makes ice cream and also has a small bakery. His mother has helped him with this work in the last couple of years and motivates him to continue growing as a person and salesperson.

This work has generated excellent benefits and utilities. He has also become known throughout his town. At the start of the pandemic, his income was hurt due to all of the restrictions. Thanks to the recent economic reactivation, things have returned to normal and he has been able to recover. He needs to increase his inventory to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 due to the increase in demand for his food. He is applying for a Kiva loan, his first financing through Fundación Santo Domingo, so he can invest in the purchase of ice cream, dried fruit, strawberries, cherries, chocolate chips, cookies, and more.

Antony needs an injection of capital to strengthen his business plan, increase his sales, and improve his quality of life. Help him with his loan so he can be a success!
