Sergio David's story

20 year old Sergio is a young businessman. He lives in Barranquilla, where he has a store selling garments, footwear and accessories. He started his business approximately 2 years ago due to the lack of employment and also to provide his family with a better quality of life. He has earned a reputation of being responsible and committed in his work. Sergio 's store is open daily to customers who live nearby. He accepts both cash and credit payments.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic he had to suspend his work in light of sanitary and safety concerns and his finances worsened. At this time he is negotiating his first credikiva with the Santo Domingo Foundation in order to have more working capital available to purchase blouses, dresses and jeans for women in bulk, and ballet flats, sneakers, perfumes, creams and lotions for women and men. That will help him increase his sales and appeal. Support him in obtaining a business loan.
