A loan of $425 helped to buy a fishing net and to also buy pigs to raise and sell.

Ruth Dalila's story

Ruth is 29 years old and lives in Poneloya, which is outside of León. She is the mother of four children. She buys and sells fish and pigs and has had this business for 15 years. She learned this work when she was 14 years old and she got into a boat with a fishing net.

In the mornings she fishes and afterward she sells her fresh fish in the city markets. She does all of this by herself. She also buys and sells pigs.

She is seeking a loan so that she can buy a fishing net and pigs to raise and sell. One of her goals is to do maintenance on her boat so that she can improve the output of her work and she also wants to make the education of her children a high priority.
