A loan of $775 helps to purchase fish and canning tubs to package.


Narcisa Isabel's story

Narcisa Isabel and her family live in the city of Puerto López, known for its beautiful beaches and lovely tourist attractions, areas that are now deserted due to the Covid 19 emergency.

She is a hardworking woman and despite difficult times, she continues to fight. She has a shop in her home where she sells clothing, shoes, makeup, perfumes, lotions, gift items and other products. For a short time, to improve her situation, she has been selling fish. She purchases the small fish, such as pinchaguas [alewifes], then she cures them with salt and lemon and sells them in tubs to merchants. The pandemic has continued to affect her, which is why she could not pay her loans like she always has.

This credit is to buy fish and canning tubs.
