A loan of $775 helped purchasing materials to make mattresses.

Jose Diego's story

José Diego has been making soft mattresses for 21 years. He started after selling a property in Palacauina and moving to Managua. Jose Diego is 50 years old, is married and has two sons, 24 and 26, who live on their own.

The loan that Jose Diego requests will be used to purchase materials for making mattresses and to improve the small shop where he works.

This is Jose Diego's fourth loan with Kiva partner Afodenic. All the previous loans have resulted in an increase in production sales, and he hopes to continue working with Afodenic.
