Miguel Angel's story

Miguel, age 51, is a micro-entrepreneur living in the city of Cartagena de Indias. There, for approximately nine years, he has had a store.

Miguel Angel started this business due to the lack of job opportunities, and the desire to get his family ahead. He offers his services daily to people from near the area, neighbors, friends, and others. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, sales and profits from his business were very diminished, because he had to close his store early due to public health reasons.

Therefore he joined the program "Reactívate Cartagena", led by the Chamber of Commerce, to apply for his first Kiva loan with the Fundación Santo Domingo. [He will] increase working capital and buy supplies such as grains, rice, and others to stock his business and increase his sales and profits. Support his business loan.
