Jose Francisco's story

José Francisco is 58 years old and is married with two children, who are in his care. They are studying in secondary school and university. He is from the municipality of Nagarote. Nagarote is characterized by its cleanliness, being the cleanest municipality in the country, and by its typical plates such as fresh cheese, tiste (a beverage made from corn and cocoa), and donuts.

José Francisco has made a living with his tailor shop for 36 years. His business consists of making men's clothing, such as pants, tuxedos, ties, robes, and shirts. He has always had this business, which is his way of life and his means of support for his family. He needs funding to invest in working capital by buying materials such as fabric, lining, buttons, zippers, and thread.

José Francisco is grateful for the help which Kiva lenders provide to those with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they can have a decent livelihood.
