A loan of $300 helped purchase food for tilapia and improve the tank where she farms them.

Rosa Idalia's story

Rosa is 41 years old and for the past 4 years has been raising tilapia. She has a lot of clients that look for her because she sells tilapia at a very good price. With her earnings, she is able to cover certain costs at home. She lives in her own home with her husband. Her children are already independent and live in their own home but they help her from time to time. Rosa is requesting this loan in order to purchase food to fatten up her tilapia and to improve the tank that she keeps them in, which is the one shown in the picture. This will allow her to continue with her work and provide a better quality of life for her family.
