A loan of $500 helped to buy shrimp, fish, conches, etc.

Josefina's story

Josefina is 60 years old. She lives with her three children, her granddaughter, and her husband, who farms for a living. They live in their own home. She sells food and cocktails for a living. Her business is located on the beach, which is near where she has lived for 28 years now. She has a large clientele because she sells the best cocktails and food and she is very friendly when she works. With the profits she makes and with her husband's help, they are able to cover some of the household expenses. Josefina is asking for a loan to buy shrimp, fish, conches, and all the ingredients she needs to prepare the foods she sells as this is her only source of work and this will allow her to make better profits to have a better quality of life.
