A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fish..


Narcisa Carmita's story

Narcisa lives in Guayaquil. She began working because she needed the income. In order to earn money, she sold candy and gradually began generating revenue. She then decided to change her business to selling fish and fast food.

Narcisa currently sells fish by herself, starting in the early morning hours. Sometimes she will have help from her daughter. Narcisa works in the mornings and continues into the afternoon. The difficulty with her work is dealing with the rain. She is single and has two children who are attending a state school.

With this loan, Narcisa will buy fish. Her dream is to expand her house so that her children can live better.
