Jose German's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy polyester and silk thread, end guards, and tubes to make hammocks, and also to pay other people for labor.


Jose German's story

José is applying for a new loan to strengthen his inventory and thus continue working in hammock weaving. He will use the borrowed funds to buy polyester and silk thread, end guards, and tubes to make hammocks. Another part of the money will serve him to pay other people for labor.

The previous financing served him to have basic materials to make hammocks at his disposition. With this, he had the opportunity to increase his production and also achieve more earnings.

His nuclear family has not changed, but their living conditions have, since they have good health and economic stability.
