Santos Quintin's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy poly silk thread and other accessories to make hammocks and to pay other people for labor.


Santos Quintin's story

Santos is requesting a new loan to strengthen his inventory and in this way continue working with agave fiber. He will use the borrowed funds to buy poly silk thread and other accessories for making hammocks. The other part of the money will be used to pay other people for labor.

Santos used the previous loan to have raw materials available to continue working with agave fiber, with which he succeeded in increasing his sales and income. His nuclear family has not changed, but their living conditions have, since they now have good health and their diet has improved.
