Maria Olinda's story

She is requesting the loan to buy a boat motor, which will be of help to her to continue with her work fishing for seafood to sell later.

She hopes to have products available to offer her customers, which will enable her to make more sales and income, which she'll use to cover her household needs.

Her goal is to buy a boat and improve the quality of her family life.
