Jose
José, 56, lives in the community of San Lorenzo, a valley in southern Honduras. He works as a fisherman and sells fish and shrimp to different communities around where he lives. He works from Monday to Sunday and his customers are people who he visits or who visit him.

José is requesting a loan to buy a fishing net since the one he has is in disrepair and allows the fish to get away. His dream is to buy a bigger boat so he can catch more fish.
