Maritza Roxana's story

Maritza Roxana and her family live in San Clemente. It is a fishing village where the economy is driven by fishing, salt extraction, tourism, and selling artisan crafts made from casting nets and seashells.

Maritza Roxana used to make a living raising chickens, however this activity was not profitable. Now she sells fish, together with her husband. Her husband goes out fishing every day in his own boat. They sell the fish to their customers on the beach. Anything they do not sell they offer to restaurants and regular customers who always buy from them. This loan is to make repairs to the boat, nets, buoys etc.
Her dream is to have a new boat and that her family stay healthy.
