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


A loan helped Chupalitos to buy machinery to be able to produce a higher inventory and comply with future demand.


Jose's story

What started as a family dessert, I wanted to turn it into a 100% quality product for the enjoyment of Puerto Rican families. With my experience and business education, in 2019 I launched Chupalitos product to the market. My goal is to create a business where I can support my family while supporting the local economy that I use to buy my raw materials. My motivation is to inspire my family and friends that there's no success without investing in relationships and working as a team with the community that surrounds us. I'm driven by providing local families with a healthy and innovative option to battle our tropical warm weather throughout the year.
