A loan helped him to buy coffee, chocolate, milk and fruits for breakfasts.

Jose De La Cruz's story

Jose is a 51 year old small businessman who lives in the city of Cartagena. This businessman started his business selling coffee, chocolate and fried snacks from a bicycle 6 years ago, because of the need to generate income to support his family.
Jose gets up every day with the hope of giving his family a better well being, and for this reason he works hard to reach this objective. His main customers are the companions of users of a clinic where he stands daily.
Currently, he is applying to a Credikiva, the first loan he does with Fundacion Mario Santo Domingo. He will use the resources to buy inputs, such as coffee, chocolate, milk and fruits, because he has been asked to include breakfasts with fruits to distribute to his customers and obtain more profitability this way. He wants to expand the range of products that he offers his customers, strengthen his work capital and increase his sales. Support him with his business loan, it will be successful.
