A loan of $600 helped to purchase agave fiber to make and sell ropes.


José Isidro's story

José did not have the opportunity to go to school. He is in a relationship and his partner takes care of the household duties. He has three children that depend on him.

He has been making and selling ropes made of agave fiber for 15 years. He does this work at home and his nephew helps him. He also grows corn and beans.

José needs a loan to purchase agave fiber to make and sell ropes. He dreams of earning more money from his business and having better living conditions with his family.
