A loan helped to purchase supplies for artisan fishing and working capital for the restaurant.


Zoraida's story

Zoraida is from the island of Pampanal de Bolívar. She is 65 years old, and in her house she lives with her 40-year-old daughter and her 12-year-old granddaughter. Zoraida has two businesses which are fishing and preparing food to sell. For the preparation of these delicious dishes to sell, she has the help of her daughter and using seafood from fishing they prepare the food and sell it. The requested loan will be used primarily to purchase supplies for artisan fishing and working capital for the restaurant.

Zoraida says that she would like to have savings so not to have to work so much and to spend more time with her granddaughter and give her a good education since she wants to be a doctor in the future.

Zoraida would be very grateful to be the beneficiary of your help.
