Donovan's story

Donovan is a native New Orleanian who has always aspired to be an entrepreneur. In 2004, he started Infinity D&T Trucking, LLC, which transports freight and building supplies to several businesses in the Gulf Coast region. Donovan’s trucking business was flourishing until August 29, 2005, when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans. Donovan's business lost employees and customers and was forced to evacuate to Texas and later Virginia before returning to New Orleans. Although it was a difficult process to come back home, this unimaginable event only fueled Donovan’s desire to be a successful entrepreneur. Today, Infinity D&T Trucking has acquired subcontractor projects with well-known construction companies and Donovan is currently expanding his business to transport patients to doctor’s appointments. With the Kiva loan, Donovan will have maintenance done on two passenger vans to ensure safe and reliable transportation services are accessible to fixed-income residents.
