Yair Antonio's story

Yair Antonio is a 34-year-old small entrepreneur who lives with his family in the city of Cartagena. With some of his savings, he established a store where he sells basic household goods such as groceries, dishes, medicines, dairy products, red meats, snack foods, beverages, and other products. He has more than three years of experience. Yair says he knows the best ways to serve his customers and indicates that his job is wonderful even though it requires dedication and organization. However, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he is able to help many people.

The pandemic did not affect his business because he sells household staples. His sales actually increased and he was able to generate excellent profits. Yair wants to increase his inventory to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, which will also increase demand. He is currently applying for a Kiva loan, his first form of financing through Fundación Santo Domingo. Yair will invest in the purchase of sacks of rice, sugar, oil, vinegar, raw cane sugar, milk, cheese, eggs, toilet paper, sanitary pads, and other products. He wants to increase his inventory by adding innovative products, which will help to attract new customers. This will help him achieve greater profitability and a better quality of life. Please support his loan so that he can be a success.
