Roberto Roger's story

Roberto Roger is a 48-year-old micro entrepreneur. He lives in the city of Barranquilla with his wife and three children. He also has a business there where he provides maintenance and repairs to vehicles.

Roberto started his business approximately 20 years ago. It has allowed him to move his children forward and provide them an eduction and a better quality of life. It has also allowed him to gain renown as being a responsible person who is very dedicated to his work. He offers his services daily to taxi drivers and people in the area, making cash and credit sales.

Due to Covid-19 he had to stop his work due to health and safety regulations, and his business declined. Roberto is currently seeking his first Kiva loan through the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase his work capital, to pay accounts that are due and his payroll, and to buy repair parts for vehicles. This will allow him to increase his sales and profits. Support him with this business loan.
