Miguel Ángel's story

Miguel Ángel is a startup micro-entrepreneur. He is 39 years old and lives in the town of Soledad, Colombia, where he resides with his wife and two children. His business involves selling varied retail items (cacharrería) and he has been in business for one year. His business idea was born from his own experience, since he worked for 18 years in a business selling retail goods and he gained enough experience to want to become independent. His customers include stores in the surrounding villages. Due to the pandemic of Covid-19 which has surfaced worldwide, his work has decreased due to questions of biosecurity and his income has decreased drastically. Currently he is asking for his first loan with Kiva's field partner Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which he will invest in buying products like plastic products and cleaning / personal care products for the home. Support him in this loan for his business.
