A loan of $850 helped to buy fish and other seafood..


Miriam Maritza's story

Miriam is a 38-year-old woman who has many aspirations of prospering her seafood business within the next few years. Her story began outside of the marketplace, but afterwards she was approached and given the opportunity to acquire a vending post. Miriam's work involves buying her products in La Caraguay at 6am and selling until 1pm. She faces difficulties, such as crime. Miriam is not married, but has children.

Her greatest wish is to open a large "cevicheria" (a restaurant that serves marinated seafood) so that she can provide more income for her family. For this reason, this loan will be used for her seafood sales business.
