Andrea
In the state of Oaxaca there is a community called San Miguel Soyaltepec, which has a large lake which provides abundant fishing and work each year. It’s also known for the presence of the Cerro de Oro hydroelectric dam.

Andrea M. lives here. She is 45 years old and only has a third grade education because her parents didn’t have the money to provide more. She’s married to Guillermo who works as a field hand. They have two children who attend the local school.

Andrea says that she’s been working in her own business, selling fish, for more than ten years, because she wants to help her husband provide for the family and the children’s education. She tells us that she sells on the weekends and rises early in the morning to buy the fish at the edge of the dam. She takes it home to clean and then goes out to the local communities, like Tierra Blanca, Pescadito, and La Granja to sell to her customers. Andrea is a happy, hard working person who likes to work to get ahead.

She needs this loan to invest in fish to resell. She expects that this loan will allow her to have more customers and that she will be able to increase her earnings. She would like to finish building her house and give a better quality of life to her children.
