A loan of $825 helped to buy a trammel-net, lanterns and another boat.

Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is a poor fisherman and originally from Granada. He was very happy with his first loan. It was a great help to him as he received it just when he needed it and he was able to buy all the tools he uses for fishing, like lanterns, rope, thread and a net so that he could increase his sales and improve his income. Carlos is now applying for his second Kiva loan so that he can continue to invest in tools, such as a trammel-net and lanterns and to buy another boat. One of his biggest dreams is to progress in life with the help of this loan.
