A loan of $875 helped to buy newspaper, crepe paper, poster paper and other materials for his piñata business.


Ernesto Jose's story

Each piñata Ernesto makes in his workshop is unique and special. He gives each of them a certain happiness and charisma, which makes them very attractive to the public. Everyday he receives customers with a big smile. His customers come to visit his workshop daily and they catch his contagious spirit of optimism. In addition to his piñata business, Ernesto is also a Spanish and physics professor.

Ernesto's piñata sales are going fantastically well, thanks to all of the effort and details he puts into each piece. He would like to increase the size of his business, which is why he is requesting a loan through MiCredito and Kiva. He needs to buy more materials such as newspaper, crepe paper, poster paper and others to make beautiful piñatas for all kinds of events. If he receives many orders, he will need to hire some help, which will generate employment for many young people.
