A loan of $825 helps to increase his working capital to buy inputs, solders, special tin, cleaning tape, testers and tweezers among other items.


Engelbert Ernesto's story

Engelbert is a 43-year-old microentrepreneur living in the city of Barranquilla where he owns a repair shop and sells accessories for cell phones and computer equipment.

Engelbert Ernesto started this business 10 years ago due to the lack of job opportunities and the desire to get ahead and offer a better quality of life to his family.

He offers his services daily to his main clients who are passers-by in the area and pay with cash. He earned good reviews in the area as a responsible person who sells very good quality products.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic he had to suspend his economic activity due to health issues and government regulations. For this reason his income fell considerably.

Currently he is managing his first loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation to increase his working capital and to buy inputs, solders, special tin, cleaning tape, testers and tweezers among other items in order to increase his sales and his income.

Please support the loan for his business.
