Felix's story

Felix is a 60-year-old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Barranquilla with his family. This entrepreneur began his business buying and selling recycled materials due to the necessity of generating income to sustain his family. This business has been very beneficial for Felix since it is very profitable and helps to preserve natural resources. His business is well-structured and organized. His primary customers are businesses, industries, and intermediaries who purchase recycled materials in bulk. Felix offers his customers recycled customers including paper, cardboard pulp, iron, scrap metal, etc.

Currently, he is applying for a Kiva loan, his first financing with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, to invest in the purchase of recycled materials such as car parts, motorcycles, machines, recycled computers, equipment, fans, aluminum, iron, cardboard, etc.

This merchant needs an injection of capital to strengthen and capitalize his business plan with the reopening of businesses, so he will get better results which will improve his quality of life. Support him in his loan, it will be a success.
