Gina Susana
The Honduras 2000 communal bank meets in the Jaramijo (Manta) canton every two weeks. This place is known for its beautiful beaches that bathe the coasts of this lovely place. Most of the inhabitants here are very hard-working and devoted to sea related work.

This is the place where we meet Gina, age 44. She is married and has two children, ages 14 and 11. The children go to school. Her husband is a fisherman. She devotes herself to fishing and selling fish.

She has two boats that are manned by two or three people who earn a good percentage of the fish they catch. These people go to the high sea and move level with the fishing boat that her husband mans. They deliver the fish to this boat and receive their pay for the fish.

They go for 20 to 25 days in a row. After that time, they return to their homes for a week of rest before returning to the open sea. She has had her boats for nine years, and it is going very well for her.

She will use this loan to buy nets, cords, hooks, clamps, fuel, and food. These are indispensable in order to get a good catch.

She has been in her communal bank for nine years. She likes it because the loans have always helped her.

Her dream is to buy a bigger boat.
