Cesar Andres's story

Cesar Andres is a small businessman who lives in the Soledad municipality. Ten years ago he started his own business devoted to selling electrical materials and hardware. This is where he sells wholesale construction materials, hardware items, paint, glass products, equipment and materials for plumbing, and heating and electrical installations.

Currently the business has two employees, which contributes to the generation of employment and income for the families. His customers are the general public. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they had to close their doors momentarily because of the directives by the national government. His cash flow diminished. He is in the process of reactivating with all of the pertinent health and safety protocols.

That is why he is requesting his first Kiva loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo. He will use the loan to buy electrical materials like rubber, wax, paper, industrial use grease, electronics, and dried wood. He will buy at a lower price for their respective sales. Please help him with his loan.
