A loan helped to invest in buying snacks and candy.


Egidio Benjamin's story

Egidio Benjamin is a 50-year-old small business owner and resident of the city of Cartagena. He lives there with his family and has owned a candy store for 1 year as his occupation.

His business started with the help of his son-in-law, who already had experience in this type of work. Today he owns an established store where he sells a large number of products. He has benefited from the location of his shop and gets new customers every day. This work is his only source of income and is what allows him to provide for his family's sustenance.

But due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, his level of work declined for biosafety reasons and his income decreased drastically. This is why he is requesting his first Kiva loan with Fundación Santo Domingo, so as to invest in buying snacks and candy.

Support him in his loan for his business.
