Virginia Del Socorro
Virginia had to learn how to work and do business at a very early age in order to help her parents who sold seafood to support the family. That same business is now one of the main sources of income in Virginia's own home. She sells cleaned fish by the pound to salespeople in Managua and San Rafael del Sur.

Virginia needs a loan in order to meet customer demand for her products. More and more people are starting to work in this business as the produce is high in Omega 3 which helps prevent disease.
