Lidia Argentina's story

Lidia is 58 years old, married, and has 6 adult children, but one of her children has died. Her spouse works in fishing. They live in a relative's house in the canton of Jaramijo, a lovely place where the inhabitants are very humble and hard-working people.

Lidia is a woman who likes to work daily so to be able to support her spouse with the household expenses. It is for this reason that her spouse has had a boat for 10 years, which allows him to be able to generate income and be able to get their family ahead. For this, he goes out to fish for 4 days and then sells a part to the merchants and the other part Lidia takes on to sell by the pound at their house to their neighbors and relatives. For her, this loan will help her a lot because she will be able to continue with her business.

She will use this loan to purchase fishing materials. Her dreams are to have her own house and that her business grows gradually.
