Iraldis Manuel's story

Iraldis is a 56 year old small businessman resident of the city of Barranquilla, a place where he lives with his wife and children and where he also owns a workshop of carpentry and cabinetmaking production.
Iraldis Manuel started this business more than 20 years ago after having worked as a carpenter assistant. He decided to become independent and start this adventure alone where he has been able to earn a good name in the business as a responsible and hardworking person, rendering good services in the production of furniture and doors, and interior and exterior decoration.
Thanks to this he was able to move his family ahead and render better quality and better education to his children. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, he had to suspend his activities regarding safety and national government regulations. Because of this, his income was drastically affected. Currently, he has applied to his first Credikiva to be able to increase his work capital and buy materials, such as marble and granite, and equipments such as drills and polishers in order to increase his sales numbers and profits. Support him with his business loan.
