Omar Jose's story

Omar José, 37, is a micro-entrepreneur who lives with his family in the city of Cartagena. This entrepreneur is an example of dedication and struggle. Every day he makes an effort to open his business to earn income and contribute to supporting his household.

He works making and distributing baked goods and beverages. He learned the art of cooking at a young age and made desserts to sell at his house. He decided to invest his own capital in his biggest dream: his bakery. Thanks to his effort this business has generated good profits and excellent benefits. His main customers are friends, family members, neighbors, and area passersby who savor the good taste and quality of his products.

This entrepreneur's sales were affected by the pandemic restrictions and he had to resort to selling via social networks and at home to support himself and get ahead. He's looking to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 because of the increase in demand. Currently he's applying for a Kiva loan, his first financing from Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in a purchase of flour, sugar, butter, flavoring, cheese, baking powder, etc.

Omar needs an injection of capital to strengthen his business, increase his profitability, and improve his quality of life.

Support him in his loan; it will be a success.
