A loan helped to buy fishing equipment such as buns, ropes and nets.

Zoila Trinidad's story

Zoila Trinidad has three children, all of them adults, who live in Jaramijo, a very visited tourist city, with a beautiful fishing port, where most of its people work in fishing. This city has been very affected by the sanitary emergency caused by covid 19.

She is a very hard working woman who has worked all her life to move forward and support her family. For some years now she has two fishing boats. She hires people to do the fishing. They go out once a week and the result of the fishing is sold to the merchants who come to buy on the beach. She also has a smaller boat where they go fishing three days a week near the beach and the result of this fishing is sold to factories that make fishmeal. Sales dropped a little in the early days of the pandemic, but are gradually being revived. With this loan she expects to strengthen her business.

This loan is to buy fishing equipment such as buns, ropes and nets. His dream is to have a more peaceful life.
