A loan of $500 helped to buy fish and shrimp.


Jose Candelario's story

José lives with his three children, ages 8, 10 and 12, and his wife. He has been selling fish and shrimp for 15 years, working every day from 5:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. So far, he has not run into any inconveniences in his work. He is requesting a loan to buy different kinds of fish and different sizes of shrimp to sell. This loan will give him the economic resources he needs to strengthen his business so he can increase his earnings in the future and cover his family's daily expenses. His goal is to use the loan to invest well in his business so he can offer his family a better daily income and give his children a good education.
