Rolando started selling fish and shrimp two years ago. He went into this business because he lives in Libertad which is a fishing zone and several of his friends are in this line of work and it’s profitable. He works Monday through Sunday from 7am until 7pm. He works alone first buying the products in the wholesale market and then reselling them at retail. He is not married and does not have children but strives to help his parents and to improve his living conditions. The loan he’s requesting is to have capital for his business to invest in the purchase of fish to sell. In the future he hopes to be able to buy at wholesale and become a distributor in his zone.
Rolando empezó hace 2 años la venta de pescado y camarón, se inicio en este negocio porque al vivir en Libertad zona pesquera varios amigos se dedicaban a esta labor y les dejaba ganancias. Se dedica a este trabajo de lunes a domingo desde las 7 de la mañana hasta las 7 de la noche. Lo realiza solo primero comprando el producto en el mercado mayorista para luego venderlo al por menor. El no está casado ni tiene hijos pero se esfuerza para ayudar a sus padres y mejorar su condición de vida. El préstamo que está solicitando es para tener capital para el negocio e invertirlo en la compra de pescado para su venta. A futuro espera poder comprar al por mayor para ser distribuidor en su zona.
