Yelsing Jose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy plastic containers, sodium hydroxyde and other materials to make hand sanitiser.

Yelsing Jose's story

Yelsing needs to provide for his whole family. He decided to use his knowledge from his chemical engineering studies to set up his own business selling chemicals. He has been in business for five years. He makes personal use products, health products, and cleaning products. Considering the current demand brought about by the virus situation worldwide, he is ramping up production of hand sanitiser, disinfectant, and antibacterial products for the whole neighbourhood. He had already taken out a loan to buy supplies. Now he is asking for a Kiva-backed loan from Micrédito in order to buy plastic containers, sodium hydroxyde, and other supplies to make hand sanitiser. In the near future, his goal is to innovate and create products to fight again viral infections in his region and in the whole country.
