John Jairo's story

John is a 35-year old micro-entrepreneur who lives in Cartagena de Indias. He has a business selling assortments, stationary, copies and other items. John Jairo started the business about three years ago due to a lack of work opportunities. He invested his savings in starting the business and has now earned the reputation locally as a hard-working person who is a responsible businessman.

For health and safety seasons, John had to suspend his work during the worldwide Covid 19 pandemic. His income decreased considerably. John is currently arranging his first credikiva with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo so he can increase his working capital and purchase supplies, such as stationary, pencils, pens, staples, assortments and other items. The purchase will enable him to increase his sales and his profit.
