A loan of $250 helped to buy scallops wholesale.

German David's story

Germán lives with his wife. He has no children. He makes a living selling shellfish. He learned this business from his family and the advantage is that he has work equipment with which he fishes. The trouble is the tides that affect the fishing.

He's requesting a loan to buy scallops wholesale. He'll sell them with the goal of getting a profit margin. The benefit of the loan will be that Germán will have the money to make the purchase in cash and get a better price for the product.

His goal is to be able to buy himself a motor and also a boat to help him even more when he fishes, so he has a better life.
