Santos Pilar's story

Santos lives with his wife and two children, ages 8 and 6, who depend on him financially.

Santos tells he makes a living weaving agave fiber, mainly making hammocks. He learned this job with the help of his family and has an experience of 15 years in this activity.

He and his wife work together, making the hammock handles in the morning, and the hammocks in the afternoon. The advantage is that his family is involved in the business. The disadvantage is that bad weather can stop his work for a long time.

He requests the loan to buy silk thread and fabric lining to make hammocks, and a traditional machine to make hammock handles. He will also pay for labor.

This investment will help strengthening the inventory of his business and increase sales and his income, which would improve his living conditions.

His aspirations are to grow his business and get his family ahead. He also wants to offer his children an opportunity to grow financially.
