Erika Marisol's story

Erika Marisol and her family live in San Jacinto, which is a village of fishermen. Its economy is based on fishing, salt extraction, tourism, commerce, and crafts such as fishing nets, and, on a small scale, items made from various shells.

Erika Marisol works selling fishing materials from her house, where she sells rings, nylon, nets, and more. She works every day. Also, when her spouse fishes, she sells sea shrimp and small fish. She offers them to the eateries and sells them from her house.

At first, the social distancing left her without work due to the fear of the virus and various restrictions which prevented going out to sell. But, currently she is working, following the biosafety protocols.

This loan is to purchase rings, nylon, nets, buoys, shrimp, and plastic bags. Her dream is to have a fish business at her house and for her family to be very healthy.
