A loan of $300 helped to buy fish, shrimp, and shellfish.


Jose Monico's story

José makes a living selling fish. He is 51 years old and lives with his wife in his mother's house. He sells seafood in order to earn money to help pay the household expenses. José has been selling fish for 7 years. He has learned through his own initiative, working Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

José is requesting this loan to buy many fresh seafoods: fish, shrimp, shellfish, and other special varieties demanded by his customers. This would help him increase his supply in order to better serve his customers. His goal is to improve his financial situation so that he and his wife can live better.
