A loan helped to purchase a motorboat to make it easier to go out to fish.


Élmer Hernán's story

Élmer is partnered, his partner works at the household tasks, and he has two daughters who are going to school.

Élmer works in fishing and learned this trade thanks to his father. His work schedule is from 3:00 in the afternoon to 5:00 in the morning.

He needs the loan to purchase a motorboat to make it easier to go out to fish.

Élmer's dream is to have a retail space to sell fish and, in addition, he wants to give his family a better quality of life.
