A loan of $350 helped buy fresh fish to sell.


Rosa Nelly's story

Rosa is 40 years old, a single mother and lives with her 4 children in the district of Mosefú, located 20 minutes from Chiclayo.

Every day she gets up very early and goes to the fish warehouse in Ecophinsa, in the district of Santa Rosa, 10 minutes from where she lives. There she buys a variety of fresh fish to later sell in the market in the district of Pomalca.

She has been in this business for 18 years and thanks to this has been able to raise her children. Now she would like to give them the opportunity to study a technical career, and is thinking of expanding her small stand in the market by buying more fish to sell to her customers.

This is why she has, for the first time, asked for a loan from our institution to help her reach her goal. She is very responsible and hard-working and is well-known and respected by others in the market where she works.
