Dewin Miguel's story

Dewin is 32 years old, he has a store in the Malambo municipality, some 15 minutes from the city of Barranquilla. He lives with his partner and 6 year old son; they are his motivation to give his all to his work and to obtain their wellbeing. Dewin is a teacher by profession that got business experience is his fathers’ home and since he was a boy he saw how they got their family ahead through their work. This is why three years ago when he received his severance pay he didn’t think twice about setting up his own business which is now a very important part of his family’s income. The business is managed by his wife in the mornings and the afternoons by himself since he works in a school in the mornings. Dewin’s goal is to support his growth to be more profitable each day and surely he will achieve it since he is a family man, very organized and hardworking. His Kiva loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo is his first, he will buy supplies, stationary, and miscellaneous general articles since he wants to stock his store and make good use of the market that his store has cornered.
