Lidia Azucena's story

Lidia Azucena, 34, operates a seafood sales business. She has operated the business for more than 10 years and it is her only source of income. Lidia has 4 children who also depend on her income. It's for them that she works hard, going every day to the port where she can buy supplies of seafood for relatively little so that she, in turn, can offer the best prices to her customers. The loan that she is applying for will be used to buy shrimp, fish and other products that her customers want. Lidia's greatest hope is that she can keep on working and providing her children with a good education.
