Steward Frank's story

Steward is a 36-year-old micro entrepreneur who lives in Barranquilla with his wife. For approximately ten years he has had a restaurant.

Steward started his business to help improve his quality of life and that of his family. It has now become their source of sustenance. He offers typical dishes daily, through cash sales.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic he had to suspend his work, and his income decreased drastically. Steward is currently seeking his first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase his work capital and be able to reopen his business with home delivery, and to buy ingredients such as rice, meats, and oil, among other things. This will allow him to increase his sales and generate more income. Support him with this loan for his business.
