Diogenes's story

Diogenes is a small businessman, a resident from the city of Barranquilla. He lives with his wife and children in his own house. He has a restaurant and refreshments business. There, he offers breakfast, lunch, beverages and natural juices at a place located in the city center.
He started this business more than 12 years ago. His customers are the general public and people who walk around the center.
Because of the Covid -19 pandemic which appeared in the whole world, his level of work decreased due to biosafety reasons, and his income went down drastically.
Currently, he is applying to his first Credikiva from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo with which he will buy refreshments, bread, cake, and all the inputs to prepare lunches, and also for general expenses. Support him with a business loan.
