Maria Jose's story

Maria Jose is in a common-law marriage and they have a child who is a minor. Her spouse is a fisherman and they live in Jaramijó, a place of lovely beaches and varied cuisine. It is a place visited by many tourists all year round, but not so much now due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19.

She is a hardworking woman who seeks the way to help her spouse get ahead in this difficult situation which the pandemic is still causing for them. They have a boat in which her spouse and children go out on the high seas to do the fishing tasks. They go out almost every day in the early hours and come back in the afternoon or sometimes the next day. Once they get to the beach, she helps to clean the fish to then sell to merchants who come to the place to buy.

This loan is to purchase fuel, nets, cords, and other fishing materials.
