Reina Isabel
Reina Isabel S. D. L., age 33, lives with her three young children, who attend school, and her husband in the municipality and department of La Libertad. For more than 10 years, Reina has had a stall in the harbor area of Puerto D. la Libertad, a place that, for all practical purposes, is a plaza for selling seafood. She has a lot of customers from close by and further away.

Every day, her husband, Don René, supplies the fish that Reina sells. He fishes by hand catching several types of fish: red snapper, sunfish, sea bass, lonja, mackerel, shrimp, and crabs, among others.

She is preferred because of the freshness of her seafood and now her customers are beginning to order custom dried fish used for fish cakes. She needs this loan in order to be able to meet the needs of her customers and to obtain earnings for the upcoming summer season.
