Luis, 44, has worked fishing by hand for several years. He has many customers because his product is fresh and prices are really affordable. He uses profits earned to cover some of his household expenses. He lives in his own house with his wife and three children who are 20, 18 and 9 years of age; all attend school.
Luis is asking for a loan to be able to buy dragnets to fish and to be able to repair the boat which is shown in the photograph since it’s his source of work to be able to fish. He will thus be able to earn higher profits to give his family better quality of life.
