Alexis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped me to acquire equipment, hire an employee, and cover training costs.


Alexis's story

I began my career as a barista 6 years ago in the San Juan area. I worked for companies that contributed their knowledge and tools in order for me to grow in the beautiful coffee industry that my country has. I knew that, in order to achieve my dream of opening my own space, I needed a background in theoretical knowledge that I did not have, which motivated me to acquire an Associate’s Degree in Entrepreneurial Development. I have collaborated with other Puerto Rican entrepreneurs in order to benefit collectively, contributing to entrepreneurs dedicated to developing local products. I would not have been able to achieve this without the university education I acquired, the excellence I have provided, and the quality of the product delivered to your door by COLADA. Yo comencé mi carrera como barista hace 6 años en el área de San Juan. Trabaje para compañías que aportaron su conocimiento y las herramientas para crecer en esta industria cafetera tan hermosa que tiene mi país. Sabía que, para poder lograr mi sueño de emprender mi propio espacio necesitaba una serie de conocimientos teóricos que desconocía, lo que me motivo a adquirir mi grado asociado en desarrollo empresarial. He colaborado con otros empresarios puertorriqueños para beneficiarnos de manera colectiva, aportando a emprendedores que se dedican a elaborar productos locales. Esto no lo hubiera podido lograr si no fuera por la educación universitaria adquirida, por el servicio de excelencia brindado y por la calidad del producto llevado a su puerta por parte de COLADA.
