Edilberto's story

Edilberto is 47 years old. He lives with his wife, and only three children live with him. He works so he can provide them with an education and for everything his wife and children need.

Edilberto works in fishing and agriculture. Almost all his life he has devoted himself to small-scale fishing and selling fish in the nearby villages where he lives. His children are also fishermen and they help him with fishing work. Thanks to these activities he has been able to provide a livelihood to support his family.

He needs the loan to buy young fish and tilapia in order to set up a large fish tank where he can feed the fish and sell them at a good price in the future. This loan will be very helpful as he can have his own business and it will give him good profits.

He dreams that his business keeps going as fishing is his main source of income. He will use the earnings to feed his family and save in order to have funds against any situation that turns up.
