A loan of $700 helped to buy fishing supplies..


Jose Enrrique's story

Sr. Jose is 41 years old and lives in Guayaquil (La Libertad). He and his brother-in-law began fishing a few years ago. They did very well in their work, so he decided to become independent in order to earn more household income.

He goes fishing from 6:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. The most frequent challenge that he faces in his work is dealing with the weather. Jose is married and has five children (ages 15, 10, 9, 7, 5, and 2).

He will use this loan to buy fishing supplies. In the future, he wants to have a better quality of life for himself and his family.
