Miguel has 7 years' experience in selling seafood, which he learned from his father who took him to work with him from a very young age. Miguel learned and mastered the trade as he gained more experience. He decided to work on his own since he was married and needed to be able to cover the expenses for his household. He works from 4 am to 11 am every day with his wife and a relative who helps them remove the meat from crabs so that later it can be put into tubs and sold.

Miguel wants a loan to be able to invest in different types of seafood. This is his second loan with our program. He hopes that he can give his brother work with the income generated. Miguel is married, 23 years old, and has a daughter six months old. He hopes to be able to earn enough to have his own home, since he now lives with his parents.
