Israel Arturo's story

Israel is a 31-year-old microentrepreneur living in Barranquilla. There he has a business selling bollos (a sort of regional tamale) in bulk.

Israel Arturo started this business about 10 years ago due to the lack of job opportunities and to give his family a better quality of life. He works every day, and he gives his services to his main customers which are the neighboring stores and bystanders.

Due to COVID-19 he had to suspend his activities because of government regulations and health concerns. He is currently requesting his first Kiva loan with the Santo Domingo Foundation.

The loan will be used to increase his working capital and buy raw materials such as corn, yucca, wheat flour, among others, to continue with the production of his products, and thus increase his sales and profits. Give him your support!
