Robinson Jose
Robinson lives with his wife and their three children, who are between the ages of five and eight, in the city of Cartagena de Indias. He makes a living by making and selling bread rolls. The dough is made from ground maize, which is then wrapped in maize leaves and cooked before being sold in the stores in the district and to his neighbors. His goal is to increase his sales and every day he prepares different combinations of coconut, cheese, plantain and even sweet potato. His most pressing goal is to improve his living conditions and, in order to achieve it, he commits himself to working 12 days in a row.

He is currently applying to Kiva for his first financing through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, with which he will buy raw materials and supplies, such as maize, pita, cheese, and ripe plantain to produce the different varieties of his delicious product and increase his production based on the demands of the growing market.
