Antonieta and her husband have earned a living through their fishing business for more than 20 years. This is the source of their income.
Antonieta is asking for a loan to buy new fishing nets, lead weights, hooks and buckets. Through this equipment, her husband will be able to enhance his daily catch and give them more fish to sell in the market.
In the future, Antonieta hopes to expand their fishing business so that it will augment their income. Moreover, she wants to continually send her children to school to improve their learning and to allow them to have a bright future.
