Fabio Manuel's story

Fabio has his own business selling snacks which he himself packs. He buys great quantities of snacks such as chitos, chips, snacks, juices and children's puzzles, he packs them in individual packages and makes a snack which boys and girls take to school. Fabio doesn't sell to the final consumer, he sells through intermediaries such as shops and schools. He contacts with them and when they make orders he sends his three promoters to distribute the products.

His business is continually growing. When he was laid off from a company in another city, he starting making a living selling sweets and from that moment he saw himself as an entrepreneur. Today he is the owner of his business packaging and selling school snacks.

Presently he plans to request a loan from Credikiva, which will be his first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With this loan he will buy snacks such as chitos, chips, snacks, juices and children's puzzles to fill his snack packages. These will delight both children and adults and will increase the number of sales, which will make this investment successful.
