Fernando is 40-years-old, is married, and has 6 children older than 15 who are studying. He works as a fisherman. He lives on an island in the lake Titicaca in the tourist center in the department of La Paz. This area offers crafts of reed and wool. The majority of the inhabitants of the island work as fisherman or work in tourism.

This loan is his first with the institution. Fernando will use the loan to purchase fishing nets. His reason for requesting this loan is to increase the fishing yield and increase his capital. Fernando faces challenges to his business including having a better production. He will use the benefits to continue improving his work since this is his only source of income to support his family.
