A loan of $1,575 helped to buy a fishing boat.

Eugenio Jose's story

Eugenio is married and has small children. He is a very hard-working, humble man. He has been fishing since he was very young. That is when his father taught him this business activity. From then on he has not stopped doing this work.

He supports his household, and his wife devotes herself to caring for the children because they are still very young. The pirates on the river are one of the difficulties that he has.

Eugenio’s dream is to completely finish his house. He is building it little by little due to the lack of resources.

Using the loan he hopes to buy a motorboat in order to continue his business. He wishes for his children to get an education and to become professionals.
