A loan of $825 helped to buy tools: a polisher, welding set and replacement parts to sell.

Ever Enrique E.'s story

Ever Mejía Z., 22, lives in Malambo, ten minutes from Barranquilla. He has a motorcycle repair shop and small replacement parts store there. His loan request is for the purchase of tools: a polisher, a welding set and replacement parts.

Ever started the business when his father died and he got some money that he used, together with his family experience, toward this end, gradually adding second hand replacement parts. When he got a loan from a friend he added new replacement parts.

Thus he increased working capital and hired two additional mechanics that he pays a percentage of the service fees charged. He currently has motorcycle repair and service contracts with micro businesses in the city where he resides. He started his credit experience with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo to grow hand in hand with the training processes and support this organization provides.

His great dream is to consolidate his micro business into one of the best in the sector and to add other related activities to his workshop that will allow him to have a wide selection of products on hand in order to increase profitability. At the same time, his great challenge working with little capital so this is why he has called upon Kiva funds.
