A loan helped to purchase thread and manila hemp which he will use to make hammocks and also to increase his inventory in the store.


Henry Jose's story

Nine years ago, Henry decided to undertake the business of making and selling hammocks. Today, 23 years old, he is the owner of a diversified store, very grateful to be able to have his mother's support, who is his greatest pride and source of motivation. Every day, he begins his work very optimistically, full of a lot of positive enthusiasm and with desire to be able to increase his sales to generate more income.

Henry has come for financing from Kiva and MiCrédito to be able to purchase thread and manila hemp which he will use to make hammocks and also to be able to increase his inventory in the store.

In the near future, Henry plans to convert his business into a hammock shop and a distributor of a variety of products.
