A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ocean fish to sell.

Lucie Yvette's story

A 42-year-old client who is unmarried with three children, she started selling ocean fish in 2001. She has been a client of HOPE for several loan cycles. She has made payments very successfully and has enormous savings. This enables her to pursue this new loan cycle to expand her business.

She has purchased boxes of fish, such as cod, sole, and horse mackerel that she displays and sells retail at the largest market in town.

Her ambition is to open a butcher shop.

As a single woman, she is taking care of her children's school costs in a satisfactory manner. And with her profits, she has improved her family's living conditions.
