A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase nets, bobbers, and fishing line.

Lucia Margarita's story

Lucia, age 63, is a hardworking woman that has been helping her husband in realizing fish sales for over 40 years. With the capital that they earned from fish sales, she started a business selling fishing supplies.

They work from Monday to Sunday, from 5am to 7pm. Her husband has his own boat in which he goes fishing while Lucia works selling fishing supplies. She will use the loan to purchase an inventory of items such as nets, bobbers, and fishing line which would allow her to improve her business and increase her earnings.
