Albeiro Jesus's story
Albeiro Jesus is a 32 year old micro-entrepreneur and a resident of the city of Barranquilla where he lives with his family. For five years he has operated a business decorating children's parties, weddings and hand painting t-shirts. His business idea was born with his partner as he has always liked decoration and graphic design. It was something he did informally and sporadically. But in order to contribute to the household expenses he currently works full time in the business which he has been doing for over three years. At his house he has a display case where he has stationary products for sale. This business is his only source of income and it allows him to contribute to supporting his household. But since the worldwide dissemination of the COVID-19 pandemic his level of work has deteriorated due to health concerns and his income has diminished dramatically. For this reason he is requesting his first loan from Kiva and the Fundación Santo Domingo with the objective of investing in the purchase of paint, t-shirts, stationary and others. Support him with a loan for his business.
