A loan of $600 helped to buy fish showcases.


Consuelo's story

Consuelo is married and has an adult daughter. She makes a living selling pets and pet food in the street markets, and has been doing this for more than ten years. Since she was very young, she really liked animals and wished to be a veterinarian but her financial situation did not allow it.

Consuelo hopes to contribute to society so that today's young people take responsibility of a pet in their homes and live this experience. WIth the money from the loan, Consuelo wants to buy showcases for the fish, stock up on pet food and cages, etc.

Her dream is to have a fixed business location which is large and stable, as well as well air-conditioned, for her pet sales so that she does not have to walk around in the markets.
