A loan of $1,100 helps to pay his current obligations resulting from the operation of his business.


Boris Enrique's story

Boris Enrique is a 43 year old small businessperson who lives in the city of Barranquilla together with his spouse. He owns a commercial activity which is the design and elaboration of graphic arts, printing paperwork and advertising.

He started out more than two years ago, working independently and without commercial registry, and as he has consolidated his market and service quality he has managed to formalize the business and structure it better, to the point that he has more than 20 clients, with whom he has settled contracts for six months of services.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which showed up on a global scale, the quantity of work he did deteriorated due to health concerns and his income fell drastically. His goals in the short term are to keep his business going during the difficult pandemic situation and to acquire higher quality fabrics and reach a greater number of customers. He wants to widen his business activity to other sectors of his neighborhood and community.

He is currently applying for his first Kiva loan through the Fundacion Santo Domingo, with the goal of meeting his current financial obligations which are the result of business operations; he also wants an injection of working capital for the maintenance and repair of tools and equipment for his work. Moreover, he will be able to respond more quickly to his customers' orders and requests, carrying out installation of screens for more clients. Support him with a loan for his business.
