A loan of $825 helps to buy high rotation merchandise, dry and wet motors, and bushings for fans.


Fernando Jose's story

Fernando Jose is a 45-year-old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia. He lives there with his wife and he owns a repair and coil shop that he has run for 25 years. Fernando José began the business thanks to his father because since he was young his dad took him to work and taught him the job. With savings and a small loan, he was able to buy his own machines in order to open up what today is his business. There he offers services repairing fans, fixing washing machine motors, blender motors, and everything related to small home appliances. His customers are neighbors, referrals, family members, and others. Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, he had to suspend his business and his income diminished sharply due to concerns for public health. Currently he is requesting his first loan from Kiva's field partner Fundación Mario Santo Domingo in order to buy high rotation merchandise, dry and wet motors, and bushings for fans. Support him in this loan for his business.
