A loan of $250 helped to buy fish, shrimp and shellfish.


Maria Doris's story

María has been in business selling seafood for five years. She makes her sales in the city center and works from Monday to Saturday. She is 24 years old and lives with her 6-month-old daughter and her husband who helps her in the business.

María is requesting a loan to invest in buying seafood such as fish, shrimp, shellfish and other species that her customers like. This loan will help her to increase her business and improve her conditions with the possibility of making more income.

María's wish is to further grow and strengthen her business because it will allow her to offer her family, especially her daughter, a better quality of life.
