A loan of $325 helped to buy fish, shrimp, and shells.


Maria Irene's story

María lives with her two children and works selling seafood. She has been working at her business for some time as a way to subsist with her family and bring a financial resource to her home. She is asking for a loan to invest it in fresh product such as fish, shrimp, shells, and others that are in demand by her customers. This purchase will help her cover expenses and continue working at her business. At the same time it will expand the quantity of product she offers at market. In the future she wants to improve her business and her earnings so her family's living conditions can be more stable.
