A loan of $1,350 helps to buy a range of inventory items.


Lisandro's story

Lisandro is an enterprising micro-entrepreneur of 55 years of age, a resident of the city of Cartagena with more than 10 years of experience in repair services. He maintains motorcycles, provides tire service, and changes oil.

His business idea arose because he worked in this profession with his father since he was very young, and from there he acquired the experience. In addition to this, there wasn't a shop that provided these services in the zone where he was living, and there were a large number of motorcycles. His customers are the general public from the neighborhood, neighbors, and passers-by.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is present on a worldwide level, his volume of work declined because of issues of biosecurity, and his income dropped drastically.

He is now arranging his first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which he will invest in the purchase of a range of inventory items.

Help him with the loan for his business!
