A loan of $850 helped to buy trammel nets for fishing and to fix the boat.


Dora Alicia's story

Dora is 59 years old and has made a living by planting corn and artisanal fishing for several years. She has many customers because her product is fresh and the prices are really affordable. With the profits, she manages to cover certain household expenses. She lives in her own home with her family.

Dora is requesting a loan to buy trammel nets for fishing and to fix the boat that is shown in the photo, since this is her source of work for the fishing. Better profits will give her family a better quality of life.
