A loan of $225 helped to buy seafood.


Juana Patricia's story

Juana sells seafood on the Masachapa coast in San Rafael del Sur. She buys her produce from people who own fishing boats which they take out to sea every day to fish for different types of seafood. Only some of their catch is sold to individuals. The rest is delivered to processing plants where they will be sold on for a higher price in pre-established markets. Juana has more than 15 years experience in her business which she inherited from her family who also sold seafood. She needs this loan in order to continue with her business.
