A loan of $350 helped to buy lobsters, shrimp and a variety of fish.

Joaquin Alberto's story

Joaquín has a business selling seafood. He learned this trade with some friends. He lives in the family home along with his wife, who is a dressmaker. They currently have no children.

Joaquín is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of lobsters, shrimp and a variety of fish, because these are the products he sells in the market. This loan will help him to expand in the area, because he will have the financial resources to invest in fresh products. This will give him the opportunity to attract new customers and increase his earnings.

His goal is to work with these loans so that he can develop his business. Once his business is developed he hopes to be able to work with his own funds, having established a good credit record.
