Ernesto Jose's story

Ernesto is a creative man who works as a piñata artisan. To him, his business is important most of all for the happiness he brings children with his products. He knows the work of Kiva with MiCredito, because he has already been a beneficiary of a loan from both organisations. He has requested a new loan with which he plans to buy coloured papers, paints, cardboard, and accessories for piñatas.

His goal in future is to turn his business into a distributor of piñatas and party supplies.
