A loan of $1,075 helped to buy fish.

Angela Cecilia's story

Sr. Ángela has been selling seafood for approximately seven years. She started out working at a factory, but then decided to establish her own business of selling fish. Ángela gradually grew her business and has built up a good clientele over many years. She wakes up at 6:00 A.M. and heads to the docks where the fishing boats arrive.

One of her difficulties is that the level of fishing has declined a bit in recent months. Ángela is separated from her spouse and has two children (ages 18 and 12) who are studying at a state school. With this loan, she wants to buy fish to sell. Among her goals are to grow her business, have enough capital to start another business, and have another source of income.
