A loan of $450 helped to buy fish at wholesale.

Diana's story

Diana is 35 years old, married, and has 3 children with whom she lives in her own house. Diana sells fish. She has a sales post installed in one of the most visited markets of the city. She rises very early to buy her products at wholesale from fisherman who come ashore with all of their catch for the day. She selects the types that have the best demand among her customers. Diana has done this work for approximately 5 years, and she mentions that with this activity, she provides food and education for her children.

What Diana likes about her work is that she has time to rest at home and keep an eye on her children. Diana was always independent and she is accustomed to taking care of herself. She hopes to maintain the same work rhythm and continue working for a good while longer.

On this occasion, Diana is requesting 1,200 sols. She is very grateful for the offered credit opportunity and for the financial support that she needs to continue ahead. In addition, she promises to make her payments in a punctual manner.

With the solicited amount, Diana will purchase fish in great demand, since the season has increased consumption of various species.
