Jose Alfredo's story

José Alfredo, 34, is a micro-entrepreneur, a resident of the city of Barranquilla.

He has a variety store. He started this work four years ago to generate income to cover family expenses. His customers are people from the area, referrals, friends, and others.

His work level deteriorated and his cash flow declined because of biosafety issues from the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. Currently he's in the process of reactivation with all the ordered restrictions and with safety protocols to ensure proper operations.

This is why he's requesting his first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo, with the goal of investing in a purchase of a display case, medicine like aspirin, dye, mascara, lipstick, nail polish, eye shadow, false eyelashes, false nails, eyebrow pencil, and costume jewelry.
