A loan of $600 helped to buy string to weave hammocks.

Santos Isabel's story

Santos lives with his three daughters who are 10, 8 and 4 years of age. He makes hammocks. He learned this occupation 12 years ago with his parents. He works with other people making hammocks. His older daughters sometimes help out too. His work schedule is 8am to 4pm.

He is asking for a loan to buy string to make hammocks. This investment will allow him to continue making hammocks better meeting demand and generating better income.

Santos’ dreams are that his daughters grow up, that they learn an occupation and be able to go to school so that they will be able to fend for themselves in the future.
