A loan of $650 helped to buy ponchos, pewter dinner services, traditional outfits, and also plastic goods.


José Elias's story

José Elías is originally from El Sauce. He is 22 years old. He thanks FAPE and Kiva for the help provided as this is his second loan that he has requested. It has helped him a lot in his business, since he makes a living selling domestic goods, like ponchos, pewter dinner services, traditional outfits, and also plastic goods, to make payments in advance to be able to cancel and so request a new loan.

He is requesting this loan to buy ponchos, pewter dinner services, traditional outfits, and also plastic goods, since he is aware that he lacks the capital to work.
