A loan of $725 helped to replace his damaged fishing nets.

Faustino's story

Faustino, 46, lives in Puerto Díaz with his family which consists of his wife and two children. He’s been an artisanal fisherman for over 25 years, an occupation his parents taught him when he was a little boy to earn his daily living. He’s asking for his 4th loan in order to replace his fishing nets that have worn away through daily use and which keep him from doing his work efficiently. This way he’ll be able to fish more and obtain higher income for his family. His family supports his efforts because both his wife and his children take care of selling the fish in the city thus obtaining income to support the family. His greatest wish is to improve his family’s quality of life and to grow more in his business.
