A loan helped to buy thread to make hammocks, and to pay workers to collect his corn harvest.


José Rolando's story

José is 29 years old and in a relationship. His partner takes care of the home. José has a young son.

José works in agriculture. He also makes hammocks to sell, and works as a mason's assistant. With these jobs he makes income to move forward with his family.

José needs a loan to buy thread to make hammocks, and to pay workers to collect his corn harvest. His dream is to continue working and to improve his income.
