Rafael Ricardo's story

Rafael is a 23-year-old microentrepreneur who lives in the city of Barranquilla where he has a business selling computers and telecommunication equipment. He started his business 2 years ago; with some savings, he rented a small store in a shopping center in the city where he offers his products daily to visitors with cash payments. He has managed to gain recognition in the sector as a responsible and hard-working young man.

Because of Covid-19, Rafael had to stop his business activities because of national government provisions and health reasons. Currently, he is requesting his first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to increase working capital and buy merchandise such as headsets, cellphones, storage, tablets, among other items to increase sales and profits. Support him in this loan for his business.
