A loan of $300 helped to buy seafood and pay someone to help her sell it.

María Delmy's story

Maria is 42, married and has two children. She is a housewife and also works selling seafood. Before selling seafood, Maria washed and ironed clothes for other people who paid for her services. Thanks to a friend that worked in this activity, she learned and now has been selling seafood for four years, she sells fish and shrimp. To buy the seafood her trip takes six hours because she has to use three different trips.

The loan requested to Fundacion Campo, is to buy more seafood and to pay someone to help her sell it. With the investment Maria will have money available to buy enough seafood to supply her clients and obtain enough income to buy some cattle for her husband and for her children to farm basic grains. Also, she wants her seafood business to expand.
