A loan of $1,350 helps to buy chemical substance to fill fire extinguishers and full and empty fire extinguisher tubes for sale.


Alexander's story

Alexander, 49, is a micro entrepreneur and a resident of the city of Barranquilla. The business idea was born 7 years ago, when he decided to start with buying and selling fire extinguishers. However, later he thought of looking for business alliances and being able to have a larger fixed customer base. With this he has been able to get ahead and plans to continue growing in his business and financially.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic they had to close their doors momentarily due to national government guidelines. They are in a reactivation process with all the relevant security protocols. He is currently managing his first loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation which the company will invest in the purchase of chemical substance to fill fire extinguishers, full and empty extinguisher tubes for sale.
