Carlos José's story

Carlos José is a 25-year-old micro-entrepreneur from the city of Cartagena de Indias who makes a living producing handicrafts. He learned this art from his wife and together, they make necklaces, bracelets, and other handicrafts that they sell on the city's beaches and to stores downtown.

His main target market is the tourists, who like to take an emblematic detail of the city with them. Currently, he is requesting his first Kiva loan to invest in purchasing stones, thread, fabric, etc. to create a new collection for the vacation season. Support him with his loan.
