Giovanny's story

Giovanny is a 38-year-old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Barranquilla. He lives with his family. He has as a business activity for 5 years the marketing and maintenance of smart doors and garages.

Before engaging in this activity he worked for a company that is dedicated to the import of technology products aimed at the automation of garage doors and gates. He learned the handling of this technology. Later he specialized in the installations and maintenance of doors and gates. During the time that he lasted in the company, he identified a market niche little explored and with little competition, he decided to leave the company and manage the installations and sales of these technologies on his own.

Currently he offers his services to his social circle and has different fixed clients in large, medium and small companies as well as regular homeowners. However, due to the covid -19 pandemic that occurred worldwide, his level of work deteriorated due to biosecurity and his income dropped dramatically.

For this reason, he joined the Atlantico Responds Program to request his first loan with the Santo Domingo Foundation in order to invest in the purchase of supplies to have immediate delivery of spare parts for controls, motors, among others. Support his loan for his business.
