Ever Luis's story

Ever Luis, age 48, is an entrepreneur who lives in the city of Cartagena with his family. He began his business due to the need to generate income to contribute to family expenses.

Ever has a business buying and selling books, teaching materials, and supplies for public schools. This merchant has ample experience in this work; he worked for a long time for different educational institutions. This activity has generated excellent results and benefits. For this micro-entrepreneur, education is very important in the lives of children, and so he offers quality products, so that they can be comfortable receiving their lessons.

Given the pandemic, his sales were affected and with that, his income. Thanks to the economic reactivation, his sales are on the increase, and so he seeks to mitigate the impact of Covid-19. Now he is applying for a Kiva loan, his first financing from the Fundación Santo Domingo, to invest in the purchase of teaching materials, stationery, booklets, forms, pencils, notebooks, erasers, etc.

This micro-entrepreneur wishes to increase the inventory of products that he offers. Thus he will attract more client referrals. This will increase his profitability and improve his quality of life. Support his business loan; it will be a success.
