Cristian David's story

Cristian David is a 24 year old micro-entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena.

A few years ago Cristian saw the opportunity to open a barbershop and made contacts with suppliers of gel, shaving cream, razors, hair wax, hair cutting machines. Since then he started getting requests for these products from friends and acquaintances with this type of business and he realized the business opportunity, especially delivering the items at home since barbers do not have time to go out and buy these supplies for their business.

Cristian David seeks to mitigate the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic and boost his economic reactivation. He joined the program "Cartagena Responds" led by the Chamber of Commerce and the District Mayor's Office of Cartagena to apply for his credikiva through the Santo Domingo Foundation, his first financing through the FSD. He plans to invest these resources in the purchase of razor blades, shaving foam, electric hair clippers, hair gel among others.

Support him in his loan, it will be a success.
