Cecilia Yolanda's story

Cecilia, age 32, is in a common-law marriage. She has four children; ages 16, 14, 9, and 3. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in the San Mateo parish, a place known for its beautiful beaches and very hard-working people.

Cecilia is a very humble woman who likes to work honorably in order to earn her own financial resources and to be able to help her husband with the household expenses. Her husband has devoted himself to the fishing business for three years. They have a boat that her husband uses. He goes out two times a week to fish. Then he cleans the fish in order for them to be sold to the merchants.

For her this loan is a big help because it allows her to continue with the business. She will use this loan to buy fishing materials and to pay for maintenance of the boat. Her dreams are to buy another boat and to start a bakery.
