A loan of $675 helps to increase the working capital and purchase supplies such as bottled water, gatorade, energy drinks and beer.


Andres Guillermo's story

Andres is a micro-entrepreneur, 43 years old, resident of the city of Barranquilla where he lives with his wife and his son, and where he also has a business distributing bottled water and energy drinks. He began this business approximately six years ago due to the lack of work opportunities and with the desire to get his family ahead.

He offers his products every day to his main clients, which are the stores and restaurants of the area, on a cash or credit basis. Because of the Covid 19 pandemic issues, he had to suspend his business activities due to regulations from the national government and health issues, which resulted in his income being drastically affected.

Andres is currently requesting his first Kiva loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to be able to increase the working capital and purchase supplies such as bottled water, gatorade, energy drinks and beer so that the number of sales can increase and thereby the business profits. Support him with this business loan.
