A loan of $900 helped fish and shrimp for resale.

Luis Enrique's story

Luis is 51 years old and lives in the outskirts of Guayaquil (a suburban zone surrounded by the Guayaquil estuary). He has been selling fish for the past to years, in order to support his wife and seven children.

One of Luis’ friends encouraged him to begin selling fish because he needed an income and his family didn’t live well. He borrowed some money and began buying and selling fish. Little by little he was able to sell fish by the sac. Now he works from morning to night, selling fish such as tilapia and corvina.

He will use the money from this loan to buy various types of fish and shrimp to continue his business. In the future he would like to buy a lot on which he can build his own home.
