A loan helped to get the training necessary to jumpstart our growth, and to buy biosecurity tools.


Sergio Luis's story

Elephtrotecnica S.A.S. is a company founded about six years ago. Its legal agent is Mr. Sergio Luis, it is located in the city of Barranquilla, and it has 12 permanent employees. The business carries out specialized maintenance and repairs on machinery and equipment. It is a business that grew of its own accord with the goal of creating jobs and helping people with limited resources. It started with its own working capital, and has earned a reputation in the field as a responsible company that offers very good services and for its efficiency and effectiveness in the services it offers.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the company had to close its doors temporarily due to government guidelines, and is currently in the process of reopening while maintaining all required safety protocols. It currently has its first Kiva loan through the Santo Domingo Foundation, thanks to the Barranquilla Responds plan, allowing it to get the necessary training to jumpstart its growth, buy biosecurity products and face the current economic situation affecting the market. The loan will also help them offer their services again and increase earnings.Please support this business's loan.
