Alberto Junior's story

Alberto is a young micro-entrepreneur, 20 years old, who lives in the city of Barranquilla, a place where he has had a business selling lunches for approximately 2 years. Alberto Junior began this business to help improve his quality of life and that of his family. This young man offers his traditional dishes with cash sales.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to suspend his work and his income reduced drastically. It is for this that he came to Plan Atlántico Responde to apply for his first Kiva loan, with Fundación Santo Domingo, to increase working capital and to be able to reopen his business with home-delivery sales, and to purchase supplies such as rice, meat, oil, and more, to be able to increase his sales and generate more income. Support him in his business loan.
