Heriberto Jose's story

Heriberto is 44 years old and lives in the municipality of San Marcos. He’s a kind and hard-working man who has been a fisherman for around 18 years. It is an activity very common in his region and which he learned from his father who used to take him to the sea to fish. Now he’s an expert thanks to this experience.

He loves being at sea, and thanks to his humble business he has been able to provide for his family. He lives in an area that used to suffer from the armed conflict. Now that the situation has improved, people like Heriberto can work without fear. He’s asking for a loan to buy more fish like catfish to sell in the holy week when fish are very heavily consumed by Catholic people, so he can do well.
