A loan helped to buy beverages wholesale, such as sodas, beer, and soft drinks.


Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis, age 29, is a micro-entrepreneur who lives in the municipality of Soledad. His business is the sale of sodas, beer, and water, which he has done for more than six months.

The idea for the business arose due to the need to generate income from his house. His clients are neighbors and small distributors. Jose Luis has the goal of having a new sales location and increasing his sales, but due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, his work declined due to bio-security questions, and his income dropped drastically. However, he is in the process of reactivating his operations.

To meet the demand at the end of the year, he joined the program "Atlántico Responde" to request his first Kiva loan from the Fundación Santo Domingo. He will invest in the wholesale purchase of beverages such as sodas, beer, and soft drinks. Support his loan for his business.
