Venancio's story

While he is busy earning a living through fishing, Venancio's wife also helps by selling fish in the neighborhood and also at the market. They are working together to provide their children with a good life.

Venancio is requesting a loan to purchase fishing nets and gasoline for his boat. His income will keep his children in school and provide healthy food for his children.
