Manuel Dolores's story

Manuel Dolores, 46, is an enterprising small businessman with more than 15 years of experience in vehicle services washing, caring for, and repairing paint, as well as selling parts and automotive products, and cleaning motors. He has been married for 8 years and has one child, with whom he lives in a rented house.

His customers are the public from the neighborhood in general, businesses in the sector, and commercial referrals. With the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, his level of work declined because of biosecurity and his income diminished drastically.

Now he's requesting his first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to invest in paying suppliers and buying spare parts like ball bearings, motor belts, brake belts, oils and additives, and other products.

Support him in his business loan.
