A loan of $400 helped to buy fishing nets to continue working.


José Felipe's story

José studied until the seventh grade. He has a partner who works as a domestic employee and they have two children who depend on them both.

José is a traditional fisherman with twenty years of experience in his work, which he learned from his father. Now his two children help José at work.

He will use this loan to buy fishing nets to continue working. José plans to improve his fishing equipment and purchase new equipment to pass on to his children.
