José Alexí's story

José, 36, is married and has one child. For several years he has made a living selling shellfish. He learned fishing from his father at a very young age. He buys the shellfish from some fishermen and sometimes he himself goes fishing in the sea. He's requesting the loan to buy more shellfish so he has more and a better variety for his customers.
