A loan of $1,000 helped to buy hammocks to sell.

Tito Santiago's story

Tito sells hammocks and ties for hammocks. He has three children; ages 39, 36, and 38. Each one has their own home.

He has had his business, La Jarcia, for 20 years. He and his wife founded the business. He works every day from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. His advantage is that he has won many customers.

He is requesting a loan to buy hammocks. He buys them made, and he resells them. At this time he does not have enough money or inventory to continue his business. This purchase will strengthen his business, and he will have more opportunities to sell and generate income.

Tito’s main objective is to have a constant source of income that will help him provide his wife with good living conditions.
