A loan helped to invest into buying free-range chicken, seafood, cold meats and ham.


Luis Felipe's story

Luis Felipe is a 65-year old small-business owner and resident of the town of Santa Lucia, where he lives with his family. He owns a commercial business where he has been selling meat retail for 25 years. He started his business a long time ago selling retail meat where he offered his services in red and cured meats.

His business is located on a street that a good number of people travel on and sales are done 100% with cash. He sets up his business from Monday to Sunday and rests one day in the week as the weekend is when his sales are greatest. This job is his only source of income and it allows him to contribute to supporting his home.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic presented around the world, his work level dropped due to biosecurity reasons and his income decreased drastically. For this reason, he is asking for his first CrediKiva with the Santo Domingo Foundation with the hope of investing into buying free-range chicken, seafood, cold meats and ham.

Support him with this loan for his business.
