Jose De Jesus's story
Jose is a humble, hardworking man. He is a very talented and creative artisan. Specifically, he makes a living through his business making handcrafted thread hammocks and swings. This business and craft were passed down to him by his parents, enabling him to move forward and gradually improve his standard of living and that of his loved ones. He has turned to a Kiva loan through MiCrédito because he wants to bolster his business. At the moment, he has many orders for hammocks, so he has requested the loan to buy thread, wood, fabric appliqués, metal hooks, and colorful fabrics. In the future, he would like to expand his workshop.
