Leon David's story

Leon David, 30, is a small-businessman who lives in the city of Barranquilla with his wife. He works raising livestock and he has a small shop where he sells pork. He's had this business for about 3 years, and over time he is selling to more people, because his meat is good quality and is offered at a reasonable price. With this business, he has been able to support his family and have a better standard of living. However, due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, his work activity declined due to biosecurity concerns and his income fell dramatically. In the short term, his goal is to cover the general costs of his business so that he can keep it running and continue to work to serve his customers.

At this time, Leon David is requesting his first loan through Kiva and the Fundacion Santo Domingo to pay for general business expenses. Specifically, he will stock up on inventory, pigs, and pig feed, and make some improvements to his shop. Support him with this loan for his business!
