José Mario's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy nets for the fish and to repair the motor of the boat.


José Mario's story

Mario is single. He works in artisanal fishing, and he learned it thanks to his older siblings. Today, he lives near a bay and fishes every night. In additional to that, he collects turtle eggs to bring them to a nursery where they take care of them until they are born and free them on the beaches. In the past, he sold cashew seeds, and he received a Kiva loan for that job, and he has already finished paying it.

The loan will be invested for buying nets for the fish and to repair the motor of the boat.

His objective is to continue working to cover his basic needs.
