A loan helped to buy fish and shellfish to sell.


José Ricardo's story

José didn't have the opportunity to go to school because of the lack of economic resources. He is separated and has two children who are already independent.

José has been selling fish and shellfish for six years. He learned this work from a friend of his. The place where he buys the merchandise is 4 kilometers from his house, and then he returns to sell it in his community and in other nearby places. He works from 5:30 am to 2:00 pm. He previously worked in agriculture.

José needs a loan to buy fish and shellfish to sell.

José dreams of continuing to grow in his business and having his own house.
