A loan of $850 helped to buy a boat for fishing.


Julio Fautino's story

Julio is 58 years old, works as a fisherman, is married, and is native of Granada. He started fishing at a young age. His wife sells food in their home in order to help him to pay the family expenses. He used his previous loan in repairing his boat, because he only has the boat that he owns and another that he rents. Also, with the previous loan, he had the opportunity to buy a fishing net.

His hard work fishing in fresh water has not been easy, but his greatest reward is when he manages to bring sustenance for his family and keep his business stable.

He is requesting a loan to buy a boat for fishing. This is one of the goals he has had for some time, because that will help him to navigate faster and better and will reduce the costs of renting boats.
