A loan helped to buy chairs, tables and perfumes for the season.

Manuel Antonio's story

Manuel is a young entrepreneur of 21 years of age. He lives in the municipality of Cartagena, he is single and lives with his family.

This merchant earns a living from renting chairs and tables for events. He has been doing this job for 1.5 years. He started with few chairs and then kept reinvesting and buying more chairs and tables.

Manuel has other income coming from selling and delivering variety goods. One of his short term goals is to grow the business. Although the Covid-19 crisis hit him considerably he believes that all the business activity will come back and he will be able to continue growing his business.

For this reason he decided to join the program Cartagena Responde and ask for his first financing with Fundación Santo Domingo to invest in the purchase of chairs, tables and perfumes for the season. Support him in his business loan, it will be a success.
