Diego Andres's story

Diego Andrés, 20, is a young micro-entrepreneur who lives in Baranoa, Atlántico.

His business is an ice-cream shop. He started this work seven months ago with the goal of earning income to cover his personal expenses. His customers are people from the area, referrals, friends, and others.

His work flow and his cash flow declined drastically because of biosafety issues from the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. At the moment he's in the process of reactivating with all the restriction orders and biosafety protocols to guarantee correct operations.

This is why he's requesting his first Kiva loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. His goal is to invest in a purchase of a variety of ice creams, brownies, products for milkshakes and sandwiches, as well as tables and chairs.

Support him with his business loan.
