A loan of $675 helped to buy nets and fishing line.

Wilson Roberto's story

This borrower is from the city of Machala. He learned his trade from his family since it is a longtime tradition. From a young age, the borrower has worked as a small-time fisherman and now he is able to support his family. He works with his son and they leave in the mornings and make two-day trips in order to catch fish. The borrower is in a common-law relationship and his partner is in charge of the household duties. They have two grown children who are already in relationships.

For now the borrower wants to invest the money from his loan in the purchase of materials for his work as a fisherman, such as nets and fishing line.
