Enrique's story

Enrique is originally from Uruguay and came to the United States 13 years ago. He started to work in the construction industry on apartment improvement projects before becoming a manager at the DC location of the La Tasca Restaurant. As manager, he often dealt with different construction companies to repair, maintain, and remodel the restaurant. Enrique now works as the owner of Cimarron Contracting, LLC. Cimarron is a construction company that provides property maintenance services in the Washington metro area, including all of La Tasca’s five locations in the region. Since 2010, to diversify his business to stay active during the winter months when restaurant maintenance needs are less frequent, Enrique and his business partner have sought snow removal contracts. Thanks to Enrique’s hard work, Cimmaron has a new contract for snow removal in Fairfax County for this winter. His Kiva loan will be used to help Enrique execute the contract and buy equipment, including safety vests and shoes, hard hats, and a tire chain. Enrique uses the business to support his three children – two girls and one boy.
