Colomba's story

Colomba H. Vda. D. V., 50, lives in Jiquilisco, Usulután department. Colomba is a very hard-working woman who works hard to support her two children, who are students, by herself; her eldest son helps her with her business in his spare time.

Since she was very young, Colomba has sold all kinds of seafood like shrimp and fish; she used to help her mother and this was great experience for her because now she is in the same kind of business that provides her with profits to support her home, especially since her husband died, because since then Colomba has had to work even harder in order to continue forward.

She is asking for funds to buy larger amounts of fish so that she can incluD. other kinds of seafood in her inventory thereby securing more customers.
Her business enjoys a good location because it’s in Jiquilisco’s market.
