Ivan's story

Elvin is the owner of a electronics shop in the city of Cartagena. where he lives with his spouse and their three children who are between the ages of 8 and 22. In his small shop he mainly does repairs on sound systems and televisions. His customers are located in the neighborhoods near his business, where he goes around offering his services and little by little has gained new customers. He does business strictly for cash only. He started his business after having experience working in a shop of a well known business, where he worked as a electronics technician. His entrepreneurial drive led him to open his own business and today his dream is to grow his business, but his working capital is insufficient for the size of his goal. He is currently applying for a loan from Kiva, which will be his first loan through 'Fundación Mario Santo Domino', which he will use to buy work tools like screwdriver sets, shelves and lamps. This will help him work more effectively, have a comfortable atmosphere, and be well organized to present a good image to his distinguished customers.
