María Auxiliadora's story

María Auxiliadora is a determined woman who looks for a way to earn a living and she is achieving that thanks to the loans. She works buying and selling fish. She buys from fishermen in the area and, after cleaning them, she sends them to Carmen, a city where a family member receives and takes charge of delivering the product to customers. She has been doing this business for many years and has many customers who order from her. She also fillets alewife and cuts it and sells it from her house. She also delivers to seafood restaurants and other customers.

This loan is to buy fish, tubs and other things she needs in her job.
