Victor Antonio's story

Victor Antonio is a micro entrepreneur who resides in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. He is 56 years old and is the owner of a barber shop, a business he began approximately 2 years ago.

Victor Antonio began this business because he always had a dream of owning his own independent business. He did not like the idea of working for someone else. And with his own business, he can support his family. He offers his services on a daily basis to people in his town, neighbors and family members who pay cash and on credit.

Currently, he is requesting his first loan from Kiva, alongside Fundación Santo Domingo - FSD since the global COVID-19 pandemic has forced him to close his business due to health concerns. This loan will be used to increase his business funds, improve his place of business, buy an air conditioner and purchase items to sell like gels, razor blades, powders, men's aftershave, etc. This way, he will be able to increase his sales and improve his business.

Help him secure a loan for his business.
