A loan of $10,000 helped to pay operating expenses, such as payroll.


Angelica's story

Husband and wife entrepreneurs Angelica and Roman started Colmex Construction, LLC in June 2008. Originally from Florida, the couple came to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to aid in the rebuilding process. Although the couple has 15 years of combined experience in all phases of construction, the business started solely as a framing company but has expanded its scope to provide general construction services. Colmex’s current projects include new construction and modification of existing homes to ensure that as many homes as possible are 100 per cent energy efficient. Angelica and Roman are glad they are able to create new housing and job opportunities for the residents of New Orleans.

Angelica and Roman will use their Kiva loan for operating expenses, such as payroll.
