A loan of $625 helped to buy black conchs, sea bass, mackerel, corvines, shrimp, and nets.


Gregoria Estela's story

Gregoria has sold black conchs, shrimp, and all kings of fish from an early age, since she lives in an area where fishing is important. She has three boats, which her children use three times a week to go fishing. Later Gregoria sells the fish at the market. She says that her husband gave her the money to start the business because she had gained experience helping her mother, who also sold seafood.

Her household comprises her three children, two of whom are studying while the third fishes. The loans are a great help because they allowed her to buy the boats so that they could fish and increase their income.
