Guarli Jordani's story

Guarli Jordani, age 31, is a micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena. He has more than three years' experience in the business of buying and selling merchandise. The idea arose because he started as a seller in a merchandise distribution warehouse. There he saved until he could start his own business, as a distributor of merchandise such as clothing, footwear, etc.

Now he has one employee, contributing to generation of employment and the well-being of his family. Guarli Jordani is known in the area for the quality of his products, good service, and attention. His clients are individuals, re-sellers, and acquaintances.

Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, his business declined due to reasons of bio-security and his cash flow dropped drastically. For this reason, he joined the "Programa Reactívate Cartagena Responde" led by the chamber of commerce, to request his first Kiva loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in payment of rent and services, and to buy merchandise such as jeans, sweaters, and sheets. Support his business loan.
