Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia is a housewife who enjoys the tradition of her family; they are fishermen of different species. With the ease of buying at excellent prices, she started her business from her home where she saves [the fish] in her refrigerator. She began very cautiously with small quantities that she offered to her friends and acquaintances. With the passing of time it made her very popular in the neighborhood where she lives in Soledad, and so she increased her variety of products. Currently she sells shellfish and fish from the sea and river, a job that she does daily according to the orders that her clients ask for.

Claudia is applying for her first Kiva loan through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation to invest in an assortment of fish and to invest in a freezer that will allow her to stock a greater quantity of products. Her future goal is to be the owner of a fish market and continue supporting her family.
