Carlos Alberto
The credit group “Aquí Hay Esperanza” [Here There Is Hope] meets every two weeks in the Jaramijo canton. This area is known for the beautiful beaches that bathe the coast of this lovely spot. The majority of residents here are very hardworking and do jobs related to the ocean.

Don Carlos lives in this place. He is 36 years old and married. He has six children from his marriage, five of whom still live at home and are elementary and high school students. His wife is a homemaker and works seasonally, cleaning fish.

In order to get necessities for his home, from a young age Don Carlos has worked in the fishing industry and in trade. Everyday he heads out to the beach at dawn to buy what his neighbors have caught fishing, to later clean with the help of his wife and resell to traders who come to this place in order to take the fish to other cities. On some days, he also heads out to fish, and in this way he fights from day to day to give his family the best.

This loan is to buy fishing supplies, fish, and shrimp, which he will resell. He has been in this credit group from the beginning and he likes the opportunity to get loans. His desire is that his family wants for nothing.
